Representatives receive 25% of a claimant's back pay or a maximum of $6,000
All Social Security representatives, including attorney and non-attorney representatives, receive 25% or a maximum of $6,000 of a claimant’s back pay: the money they receive for the time they were waiting for their claim to be approved. A claimant’s back pay amount depends on the type of benefits they are awarded, the onset of their disability and/or the date they filed their disability application.
This fee is regulated by the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Congress. There is absolutely no negotiation regarding this fee, and representatives are only paid if your case is won. Once approved, the fee is transferred directly to your representative from Social Security.
You are not responsible for administering the fee to your representative.
Some representatives will charge additional “incidental fees”. These fees are for reimbursement of incurred expenses throughout the claims process. Medical records, travel, phone calls, and postage are common examples of expenses a representative may ask you to repay. Before signing a fee agreement with a disability representative, be sure to understand the additional fees required. Medical records can cost thousands of dollars to obtain and you should not be responsible for these costs.
