How does a Social Security attorney get paid?

Currently there are three types of recognized Social Security representatives, which include attorneys, non-attorneys, and non-attorneys who are entitled to fee withholding.

Attorneys and non-attorney representatives with fee withholding are paid by Social Security from the disabled individualís back pay amount. However, non-attorney representatives without fee withholding collect their fee from the disabled individual.

Most individuals who obtain representation will typically receive services from a disability attorney, meaning that as far as the attorney's fee payment is concerned, the social security administration will handle the actual act of paying the fee to the representative.

Keep in mind, however, that even though the social security administration does this, the attorney's fee is still deducted from the claimant's total back pay amount.

What is the fee for representation on a Social security disability claim or SSI disability claim and what is currently the maximum fee prescibed by the Social Security Administration? The following page addresses this:
