How much does it cost?

There is no cost to file an application for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income benefits. The State disability office will not charge you for the costs of obtaining medical records they may request from your health care provider. They will not charge you if you are required to go to an examination at their request.  You may have to pay for the costs of documentation you may need to support your claim (e.g. a certified copy of your birth certificate).

Attorney fees
At the Law Office of Richard A. Culbertson, we handle most disability cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not have to pay us any attorney fees at the time we start working on your case. If you are not awarded retroactive benefits, you do not have to pay us any attorney fees. If we are successful, and you are paid retroactive benefits, the attorney fee would be 25% of those retroactive benefits. No amount is charged based on your ongoing monthly disability check or any medical benefits you may receive as a result of a favorable decision. In most cases, we also agree to limit our fee to a maximum dollar amount if we are able to prevail at the administrative hearing level without an appeal. This may bring the actual amount of the attorney fee to substantially less than 25% in many cases.

In appropriate cases, we may agree to accept a case on an hourly or flat fee basis. At the Law Office of Richard A. Culbertson, we do not charge for incidental expenses such as postage, long distance phone calls, or mileage. We will not charge you for any costs associated with your case unless we discuss the matter with you first. If you need evidence to support your case such as a medical examination or extensive medical records, we may be able to advance such costs with an agreement for reimbursement if benefits are awarded.

We are here to help.

If you are disabled and unable to do the work you once did, call Richard A. Culbertson at (407) 894-0888 or contact us online for a free initial consultation.  We look forward to hearing from you.
