Social Security Disability
For many people struggling to manage the responsibilities of a job while dealing with serious physical or mental ailments, it can become too difficult to continue working.
To help replace lost income, those individuals who are unable to work can apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. However, many people with genuine needs can be denied time and again by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Garry Whitaker is a Winston-Salem social security disability attorney committed to helping people struggling with disabilities get the SSD benefits they need. He works with clients in Winston-Salem and across North Carolina.
Dealing with a serious mental or physical injury or disability is difficult enough without having to navigate the paperwork, rules, regulations and complex language of the SSA’s application process. It is difficult and time consuming to navigate the initial application or the appeals process on your own. An experienced attorney, like Garry Whitaker will offer clear directions and guide you through every step of this process. He can help you fill out and file the forms correctly the first time and improve your chances of getting approval. If you’ve already received notice that your claim was denied, he can explain the appeals process, help you gather evidence and opinion letters, and represent you before an administrative law judge while presenting your case. Garry is a Winston-Salem resident and is admitted to practice law in the State of North Carolina.
