Michigan Social Security Disability- How Can I pay for a Michigan Social Security Disability Attorney when I am not working?

Many people applying for SSA Disability benefits, especially those who have been denied at the initial application level, have not worked for a while. Many of these people do not have money to pay for a Social Security Disability Lawyer. Therefore, the number one question on people’s minds is: How can I afford to pay an attorney when I am not working? The answer is simple: you only pay an attorney’s fee if you win your case. Generally, a disability attorney will represent clients on a contingency basis. That means you do not pay an attorney anything in advance and you do not pay an attorney fee if you do not win your case.

The SSA and federal law govern attorney’s fees in disability cases. The standard fee agreement states that the attorney’s fee is contingent upon winning your case. The fee is 25% of all past due benefits, up to a maximum of $6,000, or whichever is less. Thus, depending on the amount of your past due benefits, attorney fees are usually only a small portion of the benefits you receive.
