Apply for Social Security Disability in Raleigh

Applying for Disability Benefits?

Whether Social Security considers you “disabled” is determined by your inability to work. The agency considers you disabled under its rules if:

  • You cannot do the work you did before;
  • They decide you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is likely to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Why do many people consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits difficult?

Many people believe if they simply explain their situation to Social Security or bring in a doctor’s note, someone will understand and award them disability benefits. Unfortunately, that’s not the way Social Security works.

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is a complicated legal process. You must prove you are “disabled” according to the Social Security Disability Program (SSDP) legal definition.
