An Ocala Social Security Disability Attorney Answers FAQs About Review

  • Published: September 12, 2013

Questions often arise concerning review and attorney’s fees. An experienced Ocala Social Security disability attorney can shed light on the subject, as well as answer the following frequently asked questions.

What is meant by the statement that appears on the cover sheet of my favorable decision that the Appeals Council may review it “on its own motion”?

At times, when benefits are awarded by the ALJ (administrative law judge), they may be revoked by the Appeals Council in Falls Church, Virginia. This does not happen very often, but when it does, the Appeals Council will notify you no later than 60 days after the judge’s decision. They may reverse a decision after that period, but that is extremely uncommon. Although it probably will not happen to you, your Ocala Social Security disability attorney will help you through this situation if it does come up.

I am aware that I should defer spending any of my benefits until I can be certain that my Ocala Social Security disability attorney’s fees have been taken into account. How often does it occur that those fees are not withheld?

This is rare, but it does happen from time to time.

How do attorney’s fees and expenses differ?

You may be asked by your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer to reimburse her for sums that were paid to retrieve medical records, reports and so on over and above the normal fee for her services. The SSA neither pays nor reimburses you or your lawyer for these out-of-pocket expenses.

Are the checks for lawyer’s fees and back benefits mailed to me at approximately the same time?

Yes, they are.
