SSI Back Pay Installments

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Does anybody know whether that SSI back pay comes on a certain day of the month? I got my first installment the same week I was approved for SSI it came on the same day I got my first benefit. But I should receive one in January and I'm trying to figure out when I will see it? If anyone has any experience with receiving them in would love to hear about it!

Hi Laura,

Backpay installments usually come 6 months apart so you should be receiving it sometime this month. If you don't, you can contact the SSA.

Hi Crystal,

We are not affiliated with the SSA. You can apply for disability benefits online or at your local office. Best of luck!

Okay I have been reading the post and all questions have been redirected to the office... Who is in charge of releasing the back pay ? I have read 60 days after then and on the hand four months after? Which is it ?

Hi Lester,

It can take up to four months from when first benefit check was received to receive backpay. You can try contacting the SSA.
