I got approved in October 1,2019 and they're told me 2 mouth it almost December and still nothing what's going on

Hi Jennifer,

Hi Jennifer,

The process does take a while, however it has not been two months yet so hold tight. If you would like, you can always call your local office to get a check in on the status.

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!

Just saw my benefit

Just saw my benefit verification letter online saying they are paying me back pay til November 2019 . When will I get my backpay

Hi,

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.

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

Hi Kay,

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.

I am currently receiving

I am currently receiving survivor benefits from my late husband and I have since recieving my survivor benefits become legally blind am I entitled to any other benefits due to my loss of sight?

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.

I was initially denied after

I was initially denied after filing in Aug/2019, hired a lawyer and he filed the reconsideration only 3 weeks ago. On the website today, it says a medical decision has been made...I'm wondering if it's a bad sign to get a decision so soon?

Hi,

Hi,

For the most part, you can't really gather much from the length of time it takes to make a decision. It just means that they have moved on to the technical determination.

I started receiving my ssdi

I started receiving my ssdi benefits in Oct of 19. Still have not received my back payment. SS stated when called about it that it was at processing center but said nothing more. What could be taking it soo long to be processed and is there a way to speed it up?

Hi Jrwatters,

Hi Jrwatters,

Often it takes about 6 months for you to receive back pay after you begin receiving your benefits. You may be able to request expedited back pay.

I know I have sent 2 messages

I know I have sent 2 messages!! But I am desperately needing to know what I can do to get the rest of the backpay!!! I don’t know what else to do we have contacted social security numerous times, my lawyer has tried to help with this!!! My son is really in need of this money to help him pay his bills until he starts his new job and starts drawing a check from them and they pay by weekly!! And he won’t start this job until two weeks and the job he is at right now he isn’t getting to work that much and we are trying to help him out but we are not able to do that much!!!

Hi Penny,

Hi Penny,

Back Pay will generally come in 3 installments starting 4 months from approval and then 6 month intervals after that. Are you looking to get an advance on the money?

It has been 4 month and i haven't received my back pay why is that and what should I do.

Hi Jose,

Hi Jose,

I would recommend calling the SSA or making an appointment. They will be able to look at your application and should be able to provide more information. Have you spoken with your attorney? They will receive their payment before you therefore if they have been paid, your money should be coming in shortly.

Hi Mari,

Hi Mari,

Backpay typically comes about 4 months after you begin receiving disability benefits!
