How much does it cost to get a disability lawyer in Missouri?




 
In an article titled "Social Security backlog hits home", the person discussed in the article did not have representation at his social security disability hearing because he didn't think he could afford a disability attorney.

Ok. How much does it cost to get a disability lawyer in Missouri for a social security disability or SSI disability claim?

Answer: Disability attorneys are paid 1/4 of whatever back pay the social security administration owes you. This means several things.

Resources:

1. What Will A Social Security Attorney Charge above the cost of the Fee?
2. Does Social Security pay the cost of the Disability Attorney fee?
3. Social Security Disability Representation Fee cost
4. The disability attorney fee cost

1. It costs nothing upfront whatsoever to get a disability attorney.

2. You only pay the attorney if the attorney wins your case for you.

3. Since the social security administration will withhold the attorney's fee, you won't have to worry about directly taking care of the fee for representation. It will be paid by SSA out of your back payment money.

Essentially, this means anyone can have an attorney for a disability claim. And having one is particularly important at a hearing. I have to admit, I cringed when I read that this individual was operating under the false assumption that they couldn't afford representation. It's a proven fact that having representation can increase the odds of winning disability at a hearing by as much as fifty percent.
