What fees are associated with hiring Ms. Stone to represent me in my Social Security Disability claim?
We are paid only if we are successful in obtaining Social Security Disability Benefits for you. In the majority of cases, we are paid 25 percent of your past due benefits or $6,000, whichever is less. This means that the maximum fee is $6,000. (Please note that the maximum fee will increase to $7,200 for cases decided after November 30, 2022. This change applies to all other firms as well, even if their websites are not yet updated.) In some cases, higher or lower fees apply. Ms. Stone will always advise a client at the outset if there is a reason to use a different fee agreement. In all cases that involve the Social Security Administration, SSA must approve of any fee that an attorney charges. Ms. Stone does not charge a fee unless the case is successful.
It is a common misconception that if you hire a lawyer for your Social Security Disability case, the lawyer will get a percentage of all benefits, even your future payments. THIS IS NOT THE CASE.
