What is Social Security Disability Insurance?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal program put in place to provide help to those with disabilities in America. The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays SSDI benefits to you and some of your family if you have insurance.
Social Security disability benefits are paid based solely on financial need.
“Do I qualify for disability benefits?”
A disability lawyer serving clients in Salisbury and elsewhere in North Carolina can help determine whether or not you have a case for Social Security disability benefits.
However, here are some things to know:
In order to qualify for disability benefits, you must:
- have worked for at least 5 of the last 10 years and consistently paid Social Security taxes
- be totally disabled to qualify for SSDI benefits.
There are many other qualifying criteria that must be considered when seeking disability benefits, as well.

How does the process work?
Once the process begins, you will talk to one of our SSD paralegals or case managers. They will collect important information from you concerning your potential disability case.

We will consider your case details, including medical records and supporting documentation, and provide them to the Social Security Administration. Depending on where you are in the process, we may file a Request for Reconsideration or request a hearing before a judge.
Along the way, your disability attorney and case manager will keep you up to date on the status of your case, answer your questions, and help prepare you for your potential hearing.
When you work with Riddle & Brantley, our priority is to get you the disability benefits you deserve and make the entire process as convenient and stress-free as possible for you.
Can I handle this myself?
There is no law requiring you to hire an attorney to represent you. You can certainly represent yourself in your Social Security disability claim or appeal…
Without representation by a disability lawyer, you are statistically less likely to be approved for benefits.
According to recent research, just 34 percent of those who did not hire a disability attorney were ultimately approved for benefits, while 60 percent of those who did hire a lawyer were ultimately approved.
That’s a big difference.
You don’t want to gamble with your benefits.
