The fee is limited by law and generally is only 25% of the lump sum check for past due benefits or $6000,whichever is less. Please note that this amount refers only to Social Security Cases. There is never a fee from your monthly check and never a fee unless we win. The fee is deducted before a check is cut for the claimants' back due benefits. A typical lump sum payment to the claimant for back due benefits would be about $18,000. Then the claimant gets a monthly payment,usually for the rest of their life, in addition to other benefits.
A Veterans Benefits claim fee is limited to 20% of all past due benefits.
A Tramatic Servicemembers Group Life Insurance claim fee is limited to 25% of all past due benefits.
In most all cases there are no costs and expenses the client has to pay. An example would be if we have to pay a physician to render a report or testify- this is very rare.
