All fees in Social Security and SSI disability cases are set by Congress and must be approved by the Social Security Administration as part of the process when a case is won. Fees is 25% of any back benefit you receive, with a maximum fee cap of $6,000.
In addition to the attorney fees, if we send for the most recent medical records not collected by Social Security and we advance money on your behalf to pay for them, you will be expected to pay us back - win or lose. Fortunately, Social Security collects most of the medical records so the cost is usually small.
Keep in mind that having our expert help with your case might well result in a larger back benefit award - this would be the case if, for example, you had a prior claim that we could reopen, giving you access to more years of back benefits.
