How Much Does it Cost to Hire an Attorney for Disability Claims?
If you're thinking about applying for disability benefits, you're also probably living withthe stress of strained finances. Hiring an attorney to help you in your claim is almost essential to winning, but you might think you can't afford their services. The purpose of this article is to explain how attorney fees and costs are determined in order to show you that you can get legal protection and affordable help.
Your Right to Representation
As an applicant for Social Security benefits, you have the right to hire or find representation during the course of your claim. This can be a friend, a family member, or an attorney at a law firm. In any case, you can have someone help you apply for disability benefits and appeal your claim.
Representatives are allowed to charge claimants no more than the fee amount authorized by Social Security. When a fee is determined, the representative needs to have it authorized by the Social Security Administration to collect it. If the claimant has the fee paid by someone else or gets their representative to sign a waiver, then the fee doesn't need to be approved.
If you need help with a disability insurance policy, you can also hire an attorney. The process for authorizing a representative to take charge of your case can vary among carriers, so review your policy or speak with a representative to do so.
