Attorney’s fees in Social Security claims are controlled and regulated by Social Security Law. In the same way is definition of disability is controlled and defined by Social Security Law, so are the attorney’s fees. Attorneys in Social Security cases work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if they win the case. If they win the case, they get 25% of back benefits pursuant to a retainer agreement, up to $6,000. Under certain circumstances, fee petitions can be filed for other numbers, but in the ordinary case, 95%, 98% of the time, it’s 25% of back benefits up to $6,000 if the attorney is successful in obtaining benefits.
