Fee Payments

Below is a table showing the payments of fees to attorneys and others for representing Social Security claimants this year. These statistics are a useful analogue for how quickly or slowly Social Security is paying benefits to disabled claimants after a favorable decision. Notice the unevenness in the payments.

    I would like to see how much S9 money is sitting out there. I would like to have a dollar for every time someone has said my attorney has been paid, but I have been waiting 6 months for my retroactive benefits.

    Nice to be in current pay status, but people that have been waiting years to have their case approved need to retro money too and SSA should make paying that as much of a priority as paying attorneys.
