Do I Need a Lawyer for my SSD Appeal?

Posted by James Aspell | Jan 12, 2023 | 0 Comments

Having a lawyer handle your SSD appeal can be beneficial because they have knowledge and experience in the legal system, including the laws and regulations related to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. They can also help you gather and present evidence to support your claim and can represent you at any hearings or appeals. Additionally, they can help you navigate the complex SSD appeals process and increase your chances of a successful outcome. However, it's important to keep in mind that hiring a lawyer is not required, and some people are able to successfully handle their own appeals.

The cost to hire a lawyer for a Social Security Disability (SSD) case can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the lawyer's location, experience, and the complexity of your case. In general, SSD lawyers charge a fee that is a percentage of any back pay you receive. The fee is capped at 25% of your back pay, with a maximum of $7200.00

It's also important to note that most SSD lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they only charge a fee if they are able to help you win your case. In this case, the fee would be a percentage of your back pay and would be capped at 25%..  The 2023 maximum fee an SSD appeal lawyer can charge is $7200.00

It's always a good idea to talk to a few different lawyers to get an idea of the costs involved in your case, and to make sure that you are comfortable with the lawyer's fee structure before hiring them.

Additionally, some non-profit organizations or legal aid societies may offer free legal services for SSD cases for low-income individuals.
