Lump sum back payment

Hi Iva,

Hi Iva,
The letter doesn't state that it's payment 1 of 3? If not, it'll likely be the only check, but if it states that there are more to follow she could receive a lot more.

I was approved for ssi last

I was approved for ssi last week, I appied in may through my law firm, I understand that they will receive their fees, and I thank them. I filed in june, 2017, and ssa, is calculating my award, if given along with my first month benefit payment. My main question is that when I spoke with a ssi repersative, she said, they have to first make adjustments/calculations, to my VA disability payments, my son's ssi payments, and also my wife's work income information. I'm am under the impression, that I won't receive much on my ssi monthly payments when they start, and even little or no (lumpsum payment) help me understand if you can.

Hi Marcus,

Hi Marcus,
Congratulations on your approval! Your SSI will definitely be affected by your other benefits, so it's possible you'll receive a very low (maybe $100 per month) payment. It'd be more helpful to know what other income you have coming into your household?

My adult daughter(never

My adult daughter(never married, no children) just received a SS Disability Award for back pay. Her prognosis is dire and is not expected to live more than two months. She wants her back pay to be given to me. (burial expenses and medical bills) Am I supposed to file a form with SS? We share a checking account that already has me as her beneficiary

Hi Danielle,

Hi Danielle,

You may wan to speak with a SSA rep regarding that.

When my daughters SS

When my daughters SS Disability case was denied, she filed an appeal. Months later she hired a non-lawyer advocate. She signed a fee agreement. She fired her advocate for failure to have contact and not knowing what was going on with the case. As far as she could tell from asking all doctors and looking at the social security files on her case. No contact from the advocate to the doctors occurred and no documents were given to SS for the hearing. The hearing is in a month. The question remains: My son agreed to be the new advocate and SS was notified and a form was signed. He also signed a waver that he did not want any fee. My son did all of the work for the past year which was get all of the medical records to SS, and hassled with the doctors to write a updated accounting of the medical condition/prognosis/ tests and everything SS required. This was to support the doctor's opinion that my daughter could not work at all. All of the doctors said the advocate never contacted them nor were any records asked by her. If my daughter wins her appeal, we understand the judge can award the fired advocate fees. We think it's wrong for my daughter and all that hire advocates who are also stuck in the position she was. The question is, can my son now file for a fee, even if it is a token amount so the judge can see how much work was put in by my son. The former advocate never responded to my daughter request to have a statement showing the work that was done.

Hi Danielle,

Hi Danielle,
I am so sorry to hear that! It is unlikely that your son will be able to receive the fee in lieu of the attorney. Only people who have law degrees or who have been certified as advocates by the SSA will be eligible for direct deposits for legal fees after a Social Security approval.

I am a payee for my

I am a payee for my granddaughters ssi death benefits. They sent a letter saying she will not be receiving benefits since she is truning 18. She just got her back pay from all the years she hasn't received monthly benefits. Does this mean the will cancel her back pay as well?

Hi Cheyanne, no they will not

Hi Cheyanne, no they will not take away her back pay. If she is still in high school then she qualifies for auxiliary benefits until she graduates.

Could I get an emergency

Could I get an emergency payment from My back pay, to get a custody lawyer?

Hi Manda,

Hi Manda,

Expedited payments from the SSA are only for those in dire financial need. If that is the case, then you could get an expedited payment from the SSA.
