When an employee in our workforce sustains a serious injury or diagnosis that prevents them from earning income and supporting themselves and their family, they may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. This Social Security program was founded to support American workers who have had their financial futures and well-being turned upside down by an unforeseen medical issue.
If you have been affected by a debilitating medical or mental issue and are unable to work for at least a year, we invite you to contact us at Syfrett, Dykes & Furr today. Our experienced Panama City Social Security Disability lawyers are well aware of the challenges SSD applicants face as they apply for benefits and can ensure that our clients submit a claim that stands the very best chance at an approval.
You do not have to face the unforgiving SSD process without a dedicated advocate by your side. Contact our offices at (850) 795-4979 today.
"Do I Need an Attorney?"
In an ideal world, SSD applicants would be able to submit their claims to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and trust that their application will receive the consideration it deserves. This, unfortunately, is not the case in real life. In order to prevent fraud, the SSA has developed a rigorous screening process that often issues denials to truly disabled applicants. This is why industry experts and the SSA itself recommends that applicants seek professional assistance to prepare and submit their SSD claim.
Our firm can help you if:
- You are applying for SSD benefits for the first time.
- You are reapplying for SSD benefits.
- You are appealing an SSD benefits denial.
- You are a child (18 or younger) seeking SSI benefits.
- You are a Widow or Widower seeking SSD benefits.
There is also a program that can provide Supplemental Security Income Disability (SSI) benefits and our knowledgeable attorneys can help you apply for these benefits, as well. For more information on these programs and the process of securing benefits, see our Social Security Disability FAQ page.
