On February 27, 2010, Congress enacted The Social Security Disability Applicants' Access to Professional Representation Act of 2010 (PRA), Public Law No. 111-142 and revised the Act in two (2) main ways. First, the PRA permanently extended our authority to withhold 25% of a claimant's past-due benefits and directly pay any authorized fees to attorney representatives for claims filed under title XVI of the Act. Second, the PRA permanently extended our authority to withhold 25% of past-due benefits and directly pay any authorized fees to eligible non-attorney representatives under titles II and XVI of the Act who meet the following requirements:
Prior to the passage of P.L. 111-142, Congress enacted a 5-year demonstration project, which provided direct payment to non-attorney representatives who met the same requirements as mentioned above. We held two (2) examinations in 2005 and one (1) examination each subsequent year through 2009. This demonstration project ended with the passage of P.L. 111-142.
Through the services of a private contractor, CPS HR Consulting, SSA determines if a non-attorney representative meets the requirements to be eligible for direct payment of fees for his or her claimant representative services.
