I got approved in May for

I got approved in May for social security disability but I applied in February. I got improved with no problems but not getting my first payment until September but I was wonder will I just get the monthly amount or will I get back money since February ?

Hi Clyde,

Hi Clyde,
You may be eligible for back pay from your Established Onset Date, but you may want to contact a local SSA office about what you'd be eligible for back pay for.

I want to get off ssi , can I get my last lump sum payment early if I do?

HI Britney,

HI Britney,
The SSA may stick to the payment schedule that you had already had.

My wife was just approved for

My wife was just approved for Disability insurance (SSDI, the one that is strictly for people who are disabled, nothing to do with a financial based disability supplement.)

She is entitled to back pay and there has already been an ACH prenote credit US TREAS 303 SOC SEC posted to our account (on Sept 5, 2017).

However, after reading the letter she got yesterday from Social security, it sates they may have to reduce the benefits if she received Supplemental Security income (SSI) for this period.

Since we got the prenote for 0$ last week, is that an indication they have already determined she didn't received Supplemental Security income, if so, how long does it take to get the funding put into the account after the Prenote of $0

Hi Charlie,

Hi Charlie,
That may just be a form letter if she did not receive SSI benefits, but I really could not say that the prenote indicates that your wife did not receive SSI benefits.

Brad
My attorney was paid this

My attorney was paid this week. So how long on avg does it take for them to release my back pay?? I was understanding it was just 1-2 days. Is this correct??

Hi Brad,

Hi Brad,
It would depend on which benefit you are receiving, if you are receiving SSDI benefits, you would receive your back pay in about four months after you start receiving monthly benefits.

Kacee
I received my first back time

I received my first back time pay and i had to get a car so i can have transportation back and forth to my dr appointments, so 2 weeks later where i was staying they kicked me out their house and i found a place to rent and I really need the rest of my back time pay so I could have somewhere to stay, im trying to see how could i get the rest of my money so I want be out on the streets I got a letter from the landlord who is renting me the place and took it to my worker so I'm wondering how long it will take

Hi Kacee,

Hi Kacee,

I am so sorry to hear that. You may be able to qualify for expedited payments.

My daughter lived with me 40 months while fighting to get ssi on the condition she pay me back does ssi pay it because they counted my suppot as her income and cut her back pay and monthly check down.

HI Jeanette,

The SSA may not owe you for any support that you had offered to your daughter.

Hi Mary,

We are not affiliated with the SSA, so I can't say for sure. I would recommend speaking to a SSA representative at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Cody,
If you received SSDI benefits, it should come in four months.

I see a lot on here about SSI

I see a lot on here about SSI but my husband was told at his hearing that he's being approved for a Social Security disability. Are there any restrictions on what you use your backpay for when you're getting SSD? For SSD how will they break up his back payment? Two payments? Three payments? We fought for 8 1/2 years to get approved so he has quite a lump sum coming. I have to put out there how ridiculous it is that you do have to wait so long to finally get approved and then you have to wait another six months to a year to have all of your money. If I am wrong about that please let me know. I'm hoping someone does something about that someday.

HI there,

HI there,
SSDI benefits have fewer restrictions because they are not based on income, but rather work record. Back pay is paid in one lump sum. Generally you have a good bit of freedom as to how you can use that back pay.

My husband was approved for

My husband was approved for disability benefits and has had his meeting with SS, he was given a breakdown as to what his monthly benefits were going to be, but we recently received a letter with an EOB for SSI payments should we combine the SSI amount with the SSDI to get an understanding of what his benefit amount should be , very confusing.

HI there,

HI there,
If he is eligible for both programs, his benefits would be both combined, up to a maximum of $755 a month (this is the SSI limit)

You may be eligible for this, but it's a good idea to contact your local SSA office regarding this.

Sal
I received a lum sum while on

I received a lum sum while on SSI I know that I have to save my receipts and spend all the money. What happens after that. Do I just get my regular payments back?

HI Sal,

HI Sal,
I could not say as many people receive a lump sum but are not awarded monthly benefits. You may still be eligible for monthly benefits if you spend the lump sum.

Sally
