A Percentage Fee Agreement is a contractual agreement that DCAC uses when working with our clients. DCAC will only receive payment if our client wins their case. Our clients agree to pay a percentage of any funds that are collected from Canada Pension Plan disability. There are no upfront costs while the appeal is ongoing.
Our percentage fees are dependant on what level of application or appeal you are at. If you are successful and receive $10,000 in back pay from CPPD and the percentage fee agreement was 20% - you would pay $2,000 (plus applicable taxes).
There may be some out-of-pocket expenses for medical reports or records that may be needed, however, these are discussed with our clients.
Access to justice is a very real issue for many Canadians and our agreements allow for assistance without any upfront fees to the client.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to DCAC staff members.
