  1. When you have given a lifetime of great service in the workforce it can feel a bit scary to retire. Many after retirement have high dependence on social security. An attorney can help ensure you get what you deserve.

  2. My grandpa is very old. Old to the point where he cannot work and he has to live off of his social security money for the month. I know that he tried to see if he could get more money since he is disabled. I have talked to him about seeing a social security disability claims lawyer. http://www.russelljgoldsmith.com/massachusetts-social-security-disability-claims.html
