High Point is the eighth most populous city in North Carolina. It has a population of over 115,000 and straddles four counties (Guilford, Forsyth, Randolph, and Davidson) in central North Carolina. It is the only city in North Carolina (and one of few in the United States) with part of its territory inside four separate counties.
Since the 1880, furniture manufacturing has played a central role in the High Point economy. Today, it is widely recognized as the furniture capital of the world. Twice every year, the city hosts the High Point Market, a furniture exhibition and trade show which attracts more than 100,000 buyers and exhibitors. This is the largest such furniture show in the world.
Yachts and hosiery are among the other items whose manufacture have long been a staple of the High Point economy. In more recent times, High Point has developed into a leader in industries as diverse as banking and finance, pharmaceuticals, photography and distribution. Despite its growing diversity, however, furniture manufacturing and distribution remains the anchor of the local economy.
Roughly 77% of High Point residents are high school graduates, and 25.5% have achieved a bachelor’s degree. The number of high school graduates is somewhat lower than national averages, but the number of college grads is in keeping with the rest of the country.
Nearly 10% of the children in High Point and over 23% of working age adults live with some level of disability. Of working age disabled adults, 63.5% are able to maintain some form of meaningful work, a percentage which is well above national averages and show that the industries in the High Point area make considerable concessions to allow for disabled employees.
Applying for High Point Social Security Disability Benefits
Despite everything which can be done, however, some High Point residents’ disabilities are simply too severe for continued employment. In such cases, Social Security disability benefits are often the only viable option to continue living a self sufficient life.
