“Do I qualify for Social Security disability?”
In general, those who suffer from a disability and are unable to work as a result may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. However, there are many criteria that must be satisfied in order to be determined eligible.
A disability lawyer serving clients in Roanoke Rapids and northern North Carolina can help determine your eligibility and advise you on your best legal options. In the meantime, here are 5 important questions the Social Security Administration (SSA) will consider when evaluating your claim:
- Are you currently working? In order to qualify for disability, you cannot be making more than $1,260 per month in wages.
- What is the extent of your disability? The SSA will want proof that your disability “significantly interferes” with your ability to work in order to grant you disability benefits.
- Is your disability a qualifying condition? The SSA keeps a list of disabling conditions that may automatically qualify you for benefits provided you meet certain other criteria.
- Can you do work you’ve done previously? You will need to demonstrate that you cannot reasonably perform work that you’ve performed in the last 15 years in order to qualify for disability benefits from the SSA.
- Can you do a different kind of work? You’ll also need to demonstrate that you cannot perform a different kind of work using your “residual functional capacity.”

Looking for a disability lawyer for your claim in Roanoke Rapids?
If you suffer from a disability and are unable to work, you may qualify for disability benefits — and you may be searching for a Roanoke Rapids disability lawyer to help with your appeal.
Remember, if you’ve been denied disability benefits by the SSA, you do have options to appeal, and our SSD attorneys are ready to help however we can.
There are many levels of appeal within the disability system, including:
Reconsideration — at the Reconsideration level, a different claims examiner will evaluate your application and may reverse the decision.
Hearing — at the Hearing level, your appeal will be heard by an Administrative Law Judge, who will weigh the evidence presented as well as testimony from experts and witnesses.
Appeals Council — while the Appeals Council rarely overturns a denial, it often sends claims back to the ALJ for further review and reconsideration.
Federal Court — federal courts rarely overturn a previous denial, but they sometimes remand cases back to the ALJ for further consideration.
“Without your help, I would not have received my Social Security disability benefits.”
