HALLEX
Volume I

Transmittal No. I-1-68

Chapter: I-1-2

Subject: Representative Fees

Background

This transmittal amends the Hearings, Appeals, and Litigation Law (HALLEX) manual Chapter I-1-2 to update instructions regarding representative fees when a claimant files a subsequent application while he or she has a request for review pending at the Appeals Council. These changes were necessary due to the implementation of Social Security Ruling (SSR) 11-1p: Titles II and XVI: Procedures for Handling Requests to File Subsequent Applications for Disability Benefits. We also made other minor editorial changes.
