You are not required to hire an attorney to assist you in your Social Security claim. However, since the Social Security Administration denies most applications for benefits, it is extremely beneficial to have the assistance of a professional that is knowledgeable and experienced in assisting individuals in receiving these benefits. If you choose to seek the assistance of an attorney, do not be concerned about attorney fees. There are no attorney fees unless you win your case. Federal law designates a contingent fee of 25% of your retroactive benefits or $6000 whichever is less.
The information on this web site is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should contact an attorney for advice on your individual situation. Contacting Bell Law Offices, PC does not create an attorney-client relationship.
