For 40+ years we’ve helped folks in North Carolina with their social security disability claims.
North Carolina residents with disabilities who cannot work may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These are federal programs that provide benefits to people who meet the Social Security Administration’s requirements for disability – this can be a complex procedure and we recommend that you seek help as early in the process as possible.

Social Security Disability Lawyers
Seeking help for a social security disability claim is the important first step to securing your rights to fair compensation, however it’s a complicated procedure and we recommend you employ the services of an experienced SS disability lawyer before attempting to handle your own claim.
There are a variety of support options available to people who find themselves unable to work due to a disabling impairment, or unable to continue to perform the workplace tasks for which they were originally employed.
Working with an experienced Social Security Disability Attorney is the safest way to ensure you take the most beneficial options open to you.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are the two most common resources available to people who are no longer able to work due to injury/disability, but there might be other options available to you too, depending on the specific Laws of your State. [workers’ compensation claims, for example]
An experienced SSDI Lawyer can help you ascertain what state and federal programs might be available to you to assist with providing both income and medical care, then can help you work through the paperwork and prepare yourself thoroughly for each step of the application process.
It’s not uncommon for people to run into issues during the application for Social Security Disability payments or other types of payment, particularly when there are grey areas in the type of condition they purport to have and/or their medical treatment records are incomplete.
In fact in North Carolina, fewer than 30% of people who apply for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration are approved on their initial application, requiring a complex appeal process and hearing in hope of overturning the SSA ruling.
Since the majority of social security benefit applications are denied, your SSDI lawyer must have experience in attending hearings and understand the complex system involved in getting their clients approved for SS benefits.
So it can be advantageous to involve a SS disability attorney at the start of the process rather than bring them to the table once issues arise.
Our job is to prevent issues and complications from arising with your case and ensuring that the application process is fast and efficient.
It can also be beneficial to work with a Law Firm who operate within your State. Kellum Law Firm have offices around North Carolina, including Wilmington, Jacksonville NC, New Bern, Greenville and more, so we’re on your doorstep to provide you with the legal services that you need. More importantly we’re experienced in all aspects of North Carolina State Law pertaining to Social Security Disability, along with the complex Federal requirements for a disability assessment and determination.
For example, there are certain situations where you might be prohibited from employment during the case assessment period; in such cases an experienced SS disability lawyer should be able to help you to apply for any financial and/or medical assistance programs available in North Carolina.
