How Much Does It Cost to Get a Disability Lawyer or Advocate?
Regardless of whether you work with a Social Security Disability lawyer, or a disability advocate who’s not an attorney, the way you pay for their services is the same:
- You won’t pay any upfront fees: You will receive a free consultation to start. And a disability attorney or advocate cannot charge you a retainer. It’s against Social Security rules.
- You still don’t pay any fee until you win benefits: Your disability advocate at Hanley Disability will work on your claim for free. We only collect a fee when your claim is successful. We will help you at no charge at the initial application stage and help you appeal a denial of benefits.
- You won’t pay in the form of deductions from future disability checks: Your advocate’s fees will come out of your back pay—that is a lump sum that Social Security awards you to cover the time you spent waiting on their decision to approve your benefits. You won’t pay anything out of your future monthly checks from the SSA.
- The amount you do pay is capped: Your disability advocate can receive a maximum of 25% of your back pay, up to $7,200. No more than that.
