I received my award letter

I received my award letter and it states that I became disabled on January 28,2017 but it doesn't tell my monthly benefits amount. It is at the processing center and has been since the 14th of this month the judge flagged it as a critical need so how long does it take for them to process the payment amount and for my family to receive benefits?

It's possible, but you may want to double check with the SSA first just in case.

I got my fully favorable

I got my fully favorable notice in august of this year no award letter no benefit check .....and called said still working on it...office said not them holding things up ...how much longer

Hi There,

Hi There,

I am so sorry to hear that. You should have at least received a letter in the mail regarding it. Were you working with a Social Security attorney? I would check in with them since attorneys are always paid by the SSA first, then the claimant.

Missy
My husband is awarded back

My husband is awarded back pay from disability, our lawyer has been paid for months now but he still hasn't received anything. He does not get on going benefits and each time we call they tell us next month it's been well over 90 daya

Hi Missy,

Hi Missy,

That does seem long, you may want to contact the SSA regarding that.

Jonathan Carswell
Why would the Treasury

Why would the Treasury Department pay the lawyer I used for my Social Security disability case but not me even though I was approved for SSDI back pay for a closed period? As far as I know I will not get any kind of a monthly check just the back pay.

Hi Johnathan,

Hi Johnathan,

The Treasury Dept. doesn't pay for legal expenses for disability cases. Social Security lawyers are paid on a contingency fee, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. If you win your case, The SSA will pay your attorney's legal fees.

Had my SSDI hearing June 6th.

Had my SSDI hearing June 6th. Notified of full disability and back pay on August 18th. Got my first monthly benefit payment in Sept. Still NO back pay. Lawyer has sent 2 letters. He was paid in September. He said there is a back log and delay. Is anyone else waiting all this time?

Hi David,

Hi David,

Backpay can take up to four months to receive after you receive your first benefit payment.

Hi Allen,

Hi Allen,

It could be because of the holidays. I would recommend checking in with the SSA after the New Year to see.

My son was born at 26 weeks

My son was born at 26 weeks in 1993. That year he qualified for ssi because he was under 1000 grams at birth. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsey at age 2. He was developmentally delayed do to his prematurity. He walked without assistance at age 6 and was attending school as a student with special needs. This continued untill high school and to our amazment he bloomed like never before and became an honor roll student graduated at a normal student potential. At age 18 the ssi was reevaluating him because he was an adult and said he was fine and didnt need ssi anymore. I appealed it once and lost then twice and lost having to pay this money back. Now its been 9 years and im still struggling finacially. My son still lives with me and if they would have just given me a chance to show them why my son was still didabled they could see for themselves that there would be no way he could work in the community. They should have never discontinued him and i feel like they owe us what can i do

Hi Dee,

Hi Dee,

Has your son tried re-applying for disability benefits? From my understanding, you had appealed a few times but it's been 9 years. He can apply again, but it would be a new application rather than an appeal. Keep in mind one reason many claims are denied is because of lack of medical evidence. If he applies again, I would make sure he has all his past and current medical evidence to support his claim. If he hasn't worked, he'll need to apply for SSI again because he won't have enough work credits for SSDI.

My husband had a stroke

My husband had a stroke November 28th of 2017. I applied for disability soon after because he was paralyzed we didn't get a notification till May of 2018 that he was approved for disability and now the Social Security is telling me that he is not eligible for back pay. I don't feel that it's right he wasn't working I was and he was disabled

Hi June,

Hi June,

When someone is approved within 5 months of applying for disability benefits, then the SSA does not reward them backpay. It sounds like that was the case for your husband.

Kimberly
I think I may have been

I think I may have been approved from what I’m reading in these notes it’s said a medical decision has been made they are reviewing the benefit application. If I am approved I have 10 year old twins will they automatically receive anything as well?

Hi Kimberly,

Hi Kimberly,

If you are approved for SSDI and listed them on your application then they may be able to receive auxiliary benefits. Once approved you can also apply for them to receive auxiliary benefits if they were not awarded any.

Kennethia
If I was approved for SSI

If I was approved for SSI could I get some of my backpay untol they start sending my payments due to hardship

Hi There,

Hi There,

In certain cases, you can receive expedited payments from the SSA. You should notify a SSA rep regarding that.
