Compassionate and highly experienced Gerard A. Palma offers assistance with SSDI and SSI claims, If you are unable to work because of your health, you may be entitled to Social Security disability or SSI benefits. The Social Security Disability Insurance program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income program (SSI) are federal programs that provide benefits to individuals with long-term disabilities.
The process of obtaining disability benefits can be slow and arduous. Most claimants find the law and procedures complex and confusing. Whether you are considering applying or you have already been denied benefits, our Lowell disability law firm can help.
At the Palma Law Offices, we take Social Security disability and SSI claims very seriously. We know that these benefits are often a financial necessity and getting approved for benefits can change your life. That is why dedicated Lowell Social Security lawyer Gerard A. Palma personally handles every Social Security claim that comes into the firm.
Potential clients are often concerned that they cannot afford to pay for a skilled disability attorney. Let us allay that concern. If you hire us, our fees are contingent on winning your claim. In other words, you will not have to pay us a fee unless we are successful in recovering retroactive benefits for you. We take no fee from your regular monthly award. The usual fee is 25% of the retroactive benefits awarded in your claim, subject to a “cap” or maximum amount set each year by the Social Security Administration.
