My lawyer said I was approved

My lawyer said I was approved for ssdi but it doesn’t show this information on ssa website. Does this mean I will be receiving benefits soon or could my lawyer have misinformed me ? How does my lawyer know the decision before me ?

Hi Darrell,

Hi Darrell,

Your lawyer fees will be the first thing paid before you receive your benefits. That is how he might know before you. If your lawyer has received money, you shouldn't be too far behind!

Hi,

It generally takes about 4 months to receive back pay and then will come in installments every 6 months depending on the size of the payment.

Hi Ricardo,

Hi Ricardo,

Typically, back pay comes about 4 months after you begin receiving benefits.

Hi Kay,

The length of time to hear back varies from case to case! You can try calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to find out if they have any updates.

Hi There,

Hi There,

You may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. You'll need to meet the Blue Book listing (I would consult with your doctor) as well as meet either the work credit requirements for SSDI or be within the income limits for SSI.
