Caption: If You Want Help With Your Appeal

You can have a friend, representative, or someone else help you. There are groups that can help you find a representative or give you free legal services if you qualify. There are also representatives who do not charge unless you win your appeal. Your local Social Security office has a list of groups that can help you with your appeal.

If you get someone to help you, you should let us know. If you hire someone, we must approve the fee before he or she can collect it. And if you hire a representative who is eligible for direct pay, we will withhold up to 25 percent of any past due benefits to pay toward the fee.
