I had the small amount put into my checking and taken back out does this mean my checks will start soon? If so what's the wait time now.

Hi there,

Hi there,
they may have made the small deposit to confirm that that is your bank account, I could not say that it is an indication that your checks will start soon.

It is illegal for them to

It is illegal for them to hold your back if u have a need housing bills a car or car trouble stove fridge ect ect. They have to release some to u but it can be no more then 9,999.99 at a time I dealt with this in 2005 and now doing it for my husband.

Hi there,

Hi there,
It may not be illegal for them to do so, however you may want to contact the SSA with documentation of your need for the money, for example an eviction or collections notice.

I got final fully approved on

I got final fully approved on Oct,26, 2017. I have recieved first 3 monthly payments and lawyer has been paid. I am still awaiting awards letter and back pay? Any clue on how long??

Hi Debby,

Hi Debby,
I really could not say, you may want to contact the SSA regarding this. Generally they would send back pay around four months after you start receiving benefits.

I had to file for SSDI 6/6/2017 resulting from a TBI which I have lived and worked w since 1995 23 years I’m hemi paralyzed my left side is painful and doesn’t function I got approved 12/2/2017 so i hope I will receive 6 months back pay I don’t know if it will come all at once or at all I haven’t received my 1st SSDI Check yet

Hi Eric,

Hi Eric,
Back pay for SSDI is paid out in a lump sum about four months after you start receiving monthly benefits.

I filed my initial disability

I filed my initial disability claim on 08/2013, and I was denied on all my appeals, that lasted until 03/2016. I filed a new claim on 06/2017 and was approved at the Reconsideration stage 01/2018, but the Appeals Council stated that I could use 01/2016 as my onset date. How will my back pay be calculated?

Hi Calvin,

Hi Calvin,
Your back pay would be calculated by your current onset date of 01/2016

Ok. I started seeing my Dr in

Ok. I started seeing my Dr in 14. Applied for disability 7/2015. Had appeal 1/2018. Judge said he put in for my disability. Ok the lawyer said my Dr records only had actual info from 7/16. Not sure why bc I seen him for the 2 years prior.so my lawyer had me sign a paper of onset from 7/16 he said bc when I applied my onst date was from 2014 but no records so I had to put 7/16. But I applied a yr before that. How does that work with backpay. My social worker friend said it would go to 7/15. But I googled it and couldn't find an actual answer.

Hi there,

Hi there,
You may receive back pay from your established onset date.

Hi everyone, I apply many

Hi everyone, I apply many times and have given up, cause filling out papers gets to me, I have a problem with y tail bone that I can’t sit too long and other health problems. My question is I became disabled on September 23 2017- I got a call from social security telling me I was awarded for social security disability then I was told I am going to get a letter confirming this, so I did, and it said I will be getting only 389.00 on April for surviving March, and May and June and so on. The I called them to find out if I will receive retroactive (back payment) I was told Nope cause the law. New rules. Just wondering if this is true cause the person I spoke to didn’t bother to check anything.

I could not say, we are not affiliated with the SSA and as such we do not have information about your case to verify this.

I heard on news that they

I heard on news that they closed 500 social security offices and a lot of folks lost there job. And who ever needs to visit social security office has to travel very far to the nearest office. They are short handed too

Hi There,

Hi There,

I can't say for sure if that's true or not, but since the government shutdown is now over, people should be getting their regular checks with no issue.

It’s been 90 days since my

It’s been 90 days since my disability hearing (in Nashville Tennessee)I’ve not heard anything my lawyer felt the judge was leaning toward a partially favorable decision? What is average wait time? I’ve not had a steady job since 2014 and no income at all since middle of 2015 thanks for any info you can provide

Hi Candy,

Hi Candy,
I could not say, you may want to contact the SSA regarding your case. Wait times can vary as every case is different.

Candy
If a partially favorable

If a partially favorable decision what onset date would be best guess at what the judge will go by ? First onset listed 10/2015, or the date the social security interviewer suggested based on my employment longevity of11/2014 or the date I turned “55” ? Which was in 2017

Hi Candy,

Hi Candy,
There are many factors that determine an onset date, I could not say what yours would be as we don't have any information on your case as we are not affiliated with the SSA.

Hi Sam,

Hi Sam,
SSDI back pay generally comes about four months after you start receiving monthly benefits.

Lola

Who can you call to check on back pay because when I call SSA they claim to know nothing about it?

Hi Lola,

Hi Lola,

Have you tried calling the SSA hotline 1-800-772-1213.

I have been waiting for 4 years for disabilty. How much back pay should i recieve?

Hi Theresa,

Hi Theresa,
You may be eligible for benefits starting from your established onset date. I really could not say how much as it can vary.

Had my hearing Feb 2nd 2018.

Had my hearing Feb 2nd 2018. Judge made a fully fav for SDI and SSDI ruling from the bench. Informed her of my homelessness and financial situation. Will be owned 60,000 in back pay. Wondering if this might be fast tracked for paying me?

Hi Rick,

Hi Rick,
You may be able to have it expedited due to dire need, you may want to contact the SSA regarding your case.

Traci
How did you find out the

How did you find out the amount you would be payed and how long till you received it? I am in same boat with a fully favorable decision being processed but can not seem to get answers on the amount.

Hi Traci,

Hi Traci,

All of that information should be in the letter you receive once a decision is made! You just may not have received it yet if it is still processing.

I applied in 2015 when I

I applied in 2015 when I literally crawled up 3 flights of stairs after work. Due to arthritis and back pain. I was turned down because I tried to work. I applied again in 2017 because I couldn't work and pain was too great. I received a call from SSDI that I was now approved but would only get payment for 2018 not 2015. How is that right?

Hi there,

Hi there,
If you re-apply rather than appeal your case, the SSA may use a later Established Onset of Disability (EOD) date for your case.
