Culbertson v. Berryhill

586 U.S. ___ (2019).

A 2019 United States Supreme Court opinion on the regulations set forth in the the Social Security Act on the fees that attorneys may charge claimants seeking Title II benefits for representation both before the Social Security Administration and in federal court.  The Court held that the Act’s fee cap of 25% of past-due benefits imposed on attorneys who successfully represent claimants applies only to fees for court representation and not to aggregate fees for both court and agency representation.
