The fee-agreeing procedure discourages appeals, especially appeals in the event of sometimes favourable decisions. See § 716. He advises against taking hard cases at a time when the SSA claims its goal is for the ALJ to only hear hard cases – paying simpler cases at a lower level of control. If the decision on the claim is unfavourable (for claims II and XVI simultaneously, this means that both decisions are unfavourable), the decision-maker does not make a decision on the fee agreement and will not communicate on the fee agreement. However, since there is an agreement between the representative and his client, each is unique, can appear in all its forms and may contain provisions in addition to fees (for example. B interest on an outstanding balance of an authorized royalty, creation of a fiduciary or fiduciary account or payment of fees for medical reports). GN 03940.004C. contains examples of provisions that prompt SSA to reject the royalty agreement. 4.
No derogation from the fee agreement procedure shall apply; NOTE: If a person who has been suspended or disqualified to act as a representative files a fee agreement, refer to GN 03970.060. OHO or OAO support staff members prepare Section I of the Hallex Recommendation Form I-1-2-117 for OHO or CA decision-makers and indicate why no fee agreement action is required in the prior notification. . . .
