LONG-TERM DISABILITY

*Almost all Social Security lawyers charge the fee allowed by regulation – 25% of the past-due benefits, payable only if the claim is approved and results in the payment of past-due benefits, not to exceed an amount set by SSA (currently $6,000). Expenses such as the cost of medical records or opinions, filing fees, or expert witness fees will be charged in addition to attorney’s fees, but usually only if the claim is successful. Attorney’s fees of 25% of the past-due benefits for successful appeals to the Appeals Council or federal court are not subject to the $6,000 limit. Fees for representing a former client whose benefits have been terminated usually will be charged at 25% of the amount of the benefits payable from the date of termination through favorable decision.
