Social Security regulates the fees paid to those repesesenting disability claimants before the SSA. A contingency fee of 25% is permitted, and charged by pretty much everyone who does this type of work.
For those using the fee agreement process that allows quicker payment of the fee, Social Security imposes a cap on the fee that will be paid. For the last 12 years or so, the fee cap has been $6,000. However, acting Social Security Commissioner Dr. Kilolo Kijakazi announced yesterday at the NOSSCR conference that the fee cap would be raised to $7,200 effective November 30, 2022.
