EAJA Attorney Fee Rates Updated

Kristi Khughes July 26, 2018

Attorneys who take Social Security appeals to federal court, and win, may be entitled to fees under the Equal Access to Judgment Act (EAJA).  Figuring out how changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) affect the amount of those fees is another one of those math exercises that leaves many of us delirious.  Luckily, our colleague Gene Doyle, of People Organized for Our Rights, Inc. (P.O.O.R.), has done all the calculations, and helps us maximize our EAJA fee petitions by updating the data as it changes. Many thanks to Gene for his powerful and persuasive charts.  Gene’s latest update incorporates June 2018 CPI data. Click here for the Excel File or  PDF File.
