I approve the fee agreement between you and your representative subject to the condition that the claim results in past-due benefits.

My determination is limited to whether the fee agreement meets the statutory conditions for approval and is not otherwise excepted. I neither approve nor disapprove any other aspect of the fee agreement.


You or your representative may ask us to review the determination on the fee agreement. If you decide to ask us for a review, write us within 15 days from the day you get this order. Tell us that you disagree and give your reasons. Send your request to this address:
