When Does a Social Security Lawyer in Mobile Charge Incidental Fees?

If you need Social Security Disability benefits, one of the things you might be worried about is the money it costs to hire a disability attorney. Well, the good news is that it doesn’t cost you any money upfront. Disability lawyers don’t get paid out of your pocket – any legal fees they collect come out of your back benefits.

Additionally, all disability attorney fees are capped by the Social Security Administration. Typically, the lawyer’s fee is 25% of the past due benefits you get, but it can’t exceed the federal cap that’s currently set at $6,000. And once again, these fees come out of your Social Security payments, not your pocket.

It’s possible you may be charged incidental fees for things like obtaining medical records, reports, forms, evaluations, photocopies and other incidental legal expenses required to help prove your case to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

If your case is in federal court, the fees are different and must always be approved by a federal judge.
