I am trying to help a friend who has been waiting for his backpay from Social Security Disability. Every time he calls he speaks to someone who tells him something different regarding the status. The last conversation stated that he was declined for his backpay but has never received any formal notice in writing. They state that he will need to file an appeal. How is this done if he has not been formally informed in writing regarding the decison?

i was approved for disability and began getting my monthly payments. my children got their SSI and then i receieved my SSI. i am now awaiting the remainder of my backpay but as i understand it they have to make sure that everyone's been paid and that there is no one else to pay and then social security pays the state back for the SSI before i receive the remainder of my backpay. i was told they have up to 90 days which is very close. why does this take so long ? i am in dire straits.

Hi Timothy,
I'm sorry to hear about that! Generally, the SSA may expedite back pay if you bring some documentation of the reason why you'd need the backpay expedited.
