Whether there is an exception to the pricing agreement procedure. If several representatives are involved and the agents have chosen to use the royalty application, any representative who wishes to collect and collect a fee for his services must file a separate royalty application. When a representative works with another representative or co-adviser whom the applicant has also appointed, an agreement between or between the two or more representatives on the service fee has no control over the SSA`s pricing authority. Therefore, the author of the levy must review the entire file, including all representative appointments, resignations, retractions and all royalty agreements submitted during the term of the right to determine whether an exception applies. If, subject to the limits set by the royalty agreement, SSA authorizes royalties and does not exceed less than 25% of the outstanding benefits or the amount indicated in dollars (for example. B 6000 USD) and that SSA then makes a more favourable decision on the claim, resulting in additional overdue benefits, SSA will not allow additional fees under the pricing agreement. However, if for some reason (for example. B because of the additional work planned for the claim), the agent wishes to request more within a fortnight of receiving the copy of the notification of the tax authorization, the representative has the right to submit in a timely administrative review of the amount of the tax. When an application for administrative review is filed, an audit official of the SSA will process the application after SSA has closed its claim in the appeal. If SSA makes a less favourable or unfavourable decision on appeal, SSA will adjust both the outstanding benefits, if any, resulting from the new decision, and the previously authorized royalty.

In these cases, the representative must repay any unable payments. SSA will not refuse a royalty agreement solely because it contains a provision that states that the author of the royalty must refuse the royalty agreement for a suspended or disqualified representative if we positively decide the fee after the suspension or disqualification of the person comes into force. For more information on processing claims with suspended or disqualified representatives, see GN 03970.060. A decision maker who has approved a royalty agreement can only require a reduction in the amount of the levy if the protocol indicates that either: the amount of the tax, which was approved under the terms of the agreement. Because a pricing agreement is a contract between a representative and their client, each pricing agreement is unique and can vary in length, content and complexity. Although applicants and their representatives may submit the pricing agreement they have signed and prefer, we have established a standard SSA-1693 (Fee Agreement for Representation before the Social Security Administration) form as an alternative. Representatives may use stamped or photocopyed signatures instead of their actual signatures on a royalty agreement and file a photocopy (or fax) of the original royalty agreement.
