Restriction of fees that a legal representative may charge

The law defines rights for citizens who submit claims against the NII through citizens’ rights organizations, lawyers, tax consultants or accountants (hereafter, the representatives). This applies to claims for the following benefits: general disability, work injury, attendance allowance, mobility, disabled child, compensation for volunteers, rehabilitation, victims of ringworm and polio.

The law defines maximum amounts that representatives are permitted to charge citizens for the services they provide. It also determines how such fees are to be collected. For your information, you may obtain advice and preparation for medical board free of charge at Helping Hand centers.  In addition, if you wish to appeal an NII decision in a labor court, you may obtain free legal assistance and representation from the Legal Aid Offices of the Ministry of Justice.
