I am getting approx. $50,000 backpay from SSDI, which the lawyer gets 25% or max $6000. After decision, I went to SS office and applied for childs auxiliary benefit. My daughter is getting approx. $25,000. SS told me the lawyer will take the $6,000 from her benefit to! Is this true? Will the lawyer combine both backpays and take $6,000 or treat them separately and take $6,000 from each amount, for a total of $12,000 in fees???
