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.
Disclaimers: The Missouri Supreme Court Rules say I have to do this. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements. Past results afford no guarantee of future results-every case is different and must be judged on its own merits. Although I work on a no-recovery-no-fee basis, the client may be responsible for costs and expenses. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations. Also, the information on this website is not legal advice. I am providing general information about various types of claims and how I handle them. Thanks
