Independent & Objective “Fee-Only” Advice

Professionals listed in the 1800ADVISER.COM directory are “Fee-Only” and are 100% Independent & 100% Objective™. In simpler terms, this means they do not charge commissions for their advice and are not incentivized to sell any particular products. Instead, their focus is on providing honest recommendations that are in your best interest.

Fair and Reasonable Pricing

Social Security services require a personalized approach, and fees reflect this. Each independent professional sets their own pricing structure, with fees starting as low as $100 per hour and significantly increasing thereafter based on the professional’s experience and your needs. Fees are also dependent on the geographic area you live in. Some professionals may charge contingent fees and offer fixed-fee packages. If your needs are unusually complex, or you need to work with an attorney through an appeals process, the costs can be significantly higher. Rest assured, all fees are clearly discussed and agreed upon in advance, in writing.
