This link can be helpful concerning attorneys and fees paid before the Social Security Administration (SSA). In cases that I handle, the fee is paid directly to me by SSA after a favorable result.  Certain elements are required including, among other things, a fee agreement.  That direct payment is the result of a number of factors, one of which is approval of the agreement as meeting the SSA standards.  Anytime an attorney represents you, insist on a fee agreement.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

In Social Security cases, there are limits on what attorneys may charge before the case is decided.  The SSA generally reviews the attorney's charges and has to approve the payment.
