Hi There,

Hi There,

It means the SSA is in the process of determining who will be your representative payee.

Ssd (the office that decided

Ssd (the office that decided my back pay)told me that they denied me my back pay. I was awarded my monthly ssd but they won't give me my back pay. Has this happened to anyone else? If so what have you done to get your money back? The social security representative that approved my ssd told me that I would get my back pay from oct 21,2016. My ssd started in may 2017 and has continued each month so far. Thanks

Do you get your normal

Do you get your normal monthly benefits with your back pay?

Hi Rhonda,

Hi Rhonda,

Yes, that is correct.

I'm thinking about

I'm thinking about applying for benefits, and heard it was a long process anyways,but from listening to the news, and reading information on the social media websites, they might close the government down in September to save money, my brother just was approved for benefits, will this affect his checks once he starts receiving them, and even make it longer on his back pay?

Hi Brenda,

Hi Brenda,
They may have a government shutdown, however it may not affect his benefits. If you're thinking about applying for benefits, it's a good idea to speak with a disability attorney or advocate about your case as they can help you with the process and help you appeal the SSA's decision if you need to. You can get in touch with one by filling out this form:

I recently received my

I recently received my approval letter from the Judge they said the onset date was 2012 however I did not file till 2015 but in the approval letter the judge said I probably won't get back pay to 2012 does he have the power to go back further than the application date for my back pay

Hi Capitola,

Hi Capitola,
Generally, back pay goes back around 17 months after you start receiving benefits.

In 2004 I was run over by a

In 2004 I was run over by a car and haven't worked since then. I applied for SSD a few years later, but was denied and I went through all my appeal processes with no luck, even though my attorney said I have a great case. They basically just ignored obvious medical information like it just didn't exist. So I sued them in Federal Appeals court and won. The ruling sent my case back to the ALJ, who the original Judge was now retired. So it took another 2 years to get a hearing date to see another ALJ, then two months later for the hearing. This time they had an independent medical expert testify. After his testimony the ALJ immediately declared that I won my case. A month later I received her decision in the mail saying that my actual onset date in 2004. (My accident date). So it took me 13 years from my accident and 8 years from my application to win my case. A case that was pretty cut and dry according to my attorney. (By the way I had to hire a second attorney just to write my Federal Appeals Court case, a very specialized and important thing according to my first attorney and it appears he was correct. My attorney says that my back pay will go back to a year before my application (minus 5 months), but I've read places here that some back pay can go back to an "Actual Onset Date" set by the Judge, is this true? Either way, both dates are quite some time ago, 13 or 8 years. I see here that back pay is broken up into 3 payments 6 months apart. The first 2 are to be no more then 3 times your monthly SSD payments, the 3rd payment covers the rest, no matter what the amount is. Why they aren't separated into 3 equal payments or not separated at all I don't know. There's more than one thing that SS does that doesn't make sense to me. Believe you me I certainly didn't want things to take so long, I'm lucky I didn't lose my house waiting to get SSD, and it certainly has had a detrimental effect on my credit score, of course my attorney told me I just might start seeing some money sometime around the holidays. If it's the same SSA I have been dealing with all these years it will be after the holidays not before. What's going to happen with my back pay I really don't know, all I can do is pray. Why they have to even break up back pay into payments is a mystery, isn't this money we were supposed to get already?

Hi there,

Hi there,
If you've applied for SSI benefits, they break up the back pay to help ensure that you don't go over the financial resource limits for SSI benefits.

I applied for disability 06

I applied for disability 06/12/17..Received a deposit 08/12/17, for 2 months (back pay?) No letter, no update on the web site. I called the office and the gal had no updates either, she said it was impossible to have this deposit and to call my bank.. It says SSA TREAS 310 XXSOC SEC PPD ID: Anyone have this happen?

Hi there Elsa,

Hi there Elsa,
It may be a good idea to contact your financial instituition, generally if you're applying for benefits you would not receive any funds without receiving an approval letter first.

My mother passed away in dec.

My mother passed away in dec. I went to her ssdi meeti g with judge in may, with her attorney present. We was awarded her back pay amd as her only living next of kin, it comes to me, her son. We moved and the lawyers recieved their money, got a call on wed that ssa was looking for us. They said the onky thing that ia holding this up is i needed to fill out a form 1724. Took care of that in a local ss office. Whats next? Should it be paid back quicker as its just sitting in treasury dept?

Hi Charlie,

Hi Charlie,
Every case is different, and so it can take varying amounts of time. Hang in there!

It's tough to say. Every case is different, and so it can take varying amounts of time.

Hi Riley,

Hi Riley,
It may be due to a change in your disability benefits, you may want to contact the SSA regarding this.

Hi Jesse,

Hi Jesse,
You may be eligible for benefits from the time of your Established Onset Date.

Rachel
It's been almost 16

It's been almost 16 months my husband was awarded permanent disability. They informed us at S.S. office by appt that there was no longer back pay. I have talked to different pal and they have received back pay. Is there back pay. I've asked them for explanation and response is there is no longer back pay.

Hi Rachel,

Hi Rachel,
I'm sorry to hear about that! Your husband may have become ineligible for back pay due to his onset date, or his back pay was withheld for some other reason.

Curious
So my back pay was right over

So my back pay was right over$10,000. Its took a few weeks but now I am actually receiving $3800 back pay due to past child support. My local child support office said I only owed $2000 something so that's good that that much will be reimbursed to me at a later day. Well, on my SSA account online it shows the one time payment of the$3800. My question is, when will I see this in my bank account? Someone help Im freaking out. I've been waiting on this since 2014, such a long, horrible process.

HI there,

HI there,
It can take varying amounts of time due to processing by your banking instituition, but if you're receiving SSI benefits, you should receive that back pay within the next 6 months if you have already received back pay.

Hi
If you see that on the SSA

If you see that on the SSA site should have a date when it will go in if not just call them they are very helpful tho I would call your local ssa office National call center is a headache:)

Hi There,

Hi There,

Good tip, you're right it can sometimes be a pain to call the national office. Best of luck.
