Basics of Social Security Disability

A brief overview of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in North Carolina

It's frustrating. You pay Social Security taxes all your working life. One day, you discover you need assistance due to a disability. When you apply, the government turns you down.

We understand how distressing it is to receive a denial notice from the government when you have a legitimate claim for assistance. Let our North Carolina Social Security disability attorneys examine your situation and help guide you. Call 1-866-900-7078 today to find out more.

At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we're on your side.

Can you answer 'yes' to any of these questions?

  • Do you know someone who is disabled and unable to work?
  • Has that person applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and been denied?
  • Are you and your loved ones new to the process and just need basic information?
  • Are you already scheduled for a hearing but don't know how to proceed?

The Social Security Department at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is here to help. Attorney Rick Fleming, who heads the department, is a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law. Board Certified Specialists are recognized by the North Carolina State Bar as having special knowledge and proficiency in Social Security Disability Law. He is also bilingual, with fluency in both English and Spanish.

He is assisted by Attorney Crystal Rouse, who worked as an examiner for the Disability Determination Services (DDS) for eight years before becoming a Social Security Disability attorney. As an examiner, she decided the relative merits of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims and determined which claims to approve for benefits. She was certified as "Level II" examiner, meaning she was also involved in reconsiderations and conducting continuing disability reviews. In addition to Social Security law, Ms. Rouse has practiced in the areas of debtor/creditor mediation, domestic violence and employment securities law.

The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin works on a contingency fee arrangement. That is another way of saying that the attorney's fee is based on a percentage of the gross recovery. While a case may have fees and costs associated with it, there is no hourly or flat fee charged by the firm. Simply put, if you do not recover monetary compensation from your claim, there is no attorney's fee. This allows the firm to bear the burden of investigating and pursuing your claim, which allows you to focus on your well-being.
