Cara Gallucci, a lawyer at d'Oliveira & Associates, successfully obtained Social Security benefits for a woman who became overcome by illness and as a result, could no longer work at her job. She attempted to file for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits on her own, but she was unsuccessful, even after appealing. She then contacted an experienced MA Social Security Lawyer for help. Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to obtain social security benefits for the woman received over $45,000 in past due Social Security Disability benefits and future Social Security Disability payments of nearly $1,100 per month.
Attorney Cara Gallucci said, “This lovely lady wanted to continue working past her retirement age, but she became ill and could not recover. She has undergone surgery, and anticipates another surgery, and I am so happy for her that the worry of financial security is off her plate, so that she can concentrate on healing and restoring her good health.”
Working with a skilled Social Security Disability Insurance lawyer could increase your chances of receiving benefits. Successfully filing and obtaining benefits for SSDI and SSI can be difficult and time consuming. In this case, the woman attempted to file for benefits and was rejected once, with another rejection upon appeal. Because of this denial, she did not recover any disability benefits during this time. Also, because of her illness, she could no longer work and had expenses begin to pile up. Fortunately, she contacted a knowledgeable Social Security lawyer that was able to successfully work on her behalf.
