I received my award letter

I received my award letter dated 1/7/19 from the SSDI judge on 1/9/19. The SSDI sent me a letter that they needed more information from me including a bank account for auto deposits before they can process and set up payments which I did on 3/1/19. My daughter received her back pay on 3/15 and my attorney was paid as well. I received both April and May monthly payments but I'm looking to see how much longer it will be before I receive any back pay? I am a resident of California. What if anything could be holding it up? Thank you for your help or information you can offer. DT

Hi Darin,

Hi Darin,

Backpay usually comes about 4 months after you fist begin receiving your benefits!

Hello everyone, I received a

Hello everyone, I received a fully favorable decision 10 weeks after hearing before judge. Wanted everyone to know that checking your status online us the best and most accurate information. I received my approval letter, then a week later it showed my payment amount online and that it will start the next month. Nothing about back pay yet but it has only been a week since approval letter and I have not received my award letter yet. So this goes to show every state is different so don't give up hope. It does take patience, though very hard to be patient when bills are piling up. The relief you feel when you finally get approved is like no other feeling, everyone hang in there and I hope and pray you get approved too.

Congrats Jennifer and thank

My husband was approved for

My husband was approved for SSDI in January and received his first monthly payment from SSDI for the month of February in March. Would the backpay then come 4 months from the date it began in February or from the date we received his first payment deposited at the end of March? Thank you for your response.

Hi Nancy,

Hi Nancy,

I believe it would be 4 months after you first began receiving benefits.

Its been over 90 days and still no backpay. Called numerous numbers get run around. Can i somehow talk to a rep at process center, not ill call u back number, they have never returned calls.

Hi There,

Hi There,

Back pay typically takes longer than 90 days to come. Back pay typically comes 4 months after you begin receiving benefits. If you are receiving SSI, you'll get it in 3 installments each about 6 months apart.
