How much does it cost to hire a Social Security Disability Attorney?
Most Social Security Disability Attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means they will only be paid if they win your Social Security Disability case. If you receive Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security income, as of June 2009, they are allowed to charge a fee equal to 25 percent of your back pay with a maximum level of $6,000. Under certain conditions, your disability attorney may request additional fees to be paid, but they would be outlined under a fee petition. It is important to discuss all fees and expected costs of settling your Social Security Disability claim with your Social Security Disability Lawyer prior to agreeing to let them represent you.
SSI Attorneys and SSDI Attorneys are paid their fee from the Social Security Administration in a disbursement before the Social Security Administration sends your settlement check to you.
