If you live in Raleigh, NC, Social Security Disability Attorney Kimberly Bishop can handle your Social Security Disability case. In this article I will discuss the steps you need to take to get your claim started and how our firm can help you.

Step One: Call the Bishop Law Firm at (919) 615-3095 and we will send you some information to get you started.

Step Two: File a claim at the local Social Security Office. The local office is at 4701 Old Wake Forest Rd, Raleigh, NC. Their phone number is (888) 221-9512. You may want to call ahead. You may also be able to file a claim online here.  When you file this claim you will need the following information.

Step 3: Meet with your Social Security Lawyer at the Bishop Law Firm. I try to meet my clients at least twice during this process. My legal assistant will set up some time for us to meet at my Raleigh Office.

Step 4: If you go anywhere new for treatment, take any new medication, or have any new diagnosis, you need to call us and let us know so we can forward that information on to the Social Security Administration.

Step 5: After you apply for benefits, your case will be sent to DDS (Disability Determination Services) in Raleigh, NC. An examiner will be assigned to your case. The examiner may send you forms to fill out and may also send forms to 3rd parties for them to give their opinion about your daily activities. It is extremely important that you complete these forms as soon as possible and return them to the DDS examiner. In addition, DDS may send you to a consultative examination.
