A. If my office does not win your case, we do not receive any fee..
A. It is a one time fee only.
A. There is no fee for the consultation.
A. Social Security will calculate the amount of our fee based on the amount of your retroactive benefits, deduct the amount from your back pay, and pay the attorney directly.
A. For social security disability, the maximum back pay is one year prior to your approved onset date, based on certain regulations. Also, there can be a 5 month waiting period.
SSI is retroactive to the first full month after the date of your application.
