Social Security Disability- Attorney fees

You do not need any money to hire our experienced Michigan Social Security Disability law firm to represent you before the Social Security Administration. Attorney fees for a Social Security disability or SSI claim are contingent on winning the claim. That means that you pay a fee only if you win, and when you are awarded benefits. You pay no fee if your claim is denied.

The attorney fee is 25% of the retroactive benefits awarded in your claim. This fee subject to a "cap" imposed by Social Security. The current fee cap is $6,000. So the fee is 25% of the back benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. An attorney is not entitled to a fee on your future benefits.

Attorney fees for Social Security claims are set by the Social Security Administration. The SSA must approve any fee that is charged in a Social Security case. Typically, the SSA approves the fee agreement, calculates the back benefits and the fee, and pays the fee directly to the lawyer.

  1. If this is the case then this is a win-win situation for the worker. Seems too good to be true but a disability attorney like this is surely a blessing.
