At SSDC, we understand that individuals applying for Social Security Disability benefits are often dealing with financial, emotional and physical stress. Unlike many other firms, our promise to you is that we will not charge you any fees unless you win your benefits.
How much do SSDC's services cost, if I win my benefits?
The Social Security Administration sets limits on the amount of money any attorney or advocacy firm, like SSDC, can charge to represent you. Currently, the amount is 25% of any past due benefits, but not to exceed $6,000. You don't pay any fees on your future monthly benefits. You can read the full fee agreement on Social Security's website.Let's look at an example:
You are awarded benefits of $1,400/month and Social Security determines you are entitled to 3 months of past due benefits.
$1,400 x 3 months of past due benefits = $4,200
Your representative fees would be 25% of the $4,200 past due benefits you were awarded.
$4,200 x 25% = $1,050 fees to your representative
You would still receive a lump sum award of $3,150 and also receive your full award amount of $1,400 every month going forward.
No Hidden Fees
Social Security Administration determines how much an attorney or advocate can charge to represent you -- this is all SSDC charges. However, be aware that other firms could include any extra costs you such as filing fees, consultation fees or meals. Whether you chose SSDC or any other firm, advocate or attorney to represent you, be sure to ask what type of fees they could charge.
