Hi Rose,

Hi Rose,
It generally takes a long time because the SSA may have a large amount of claims to review.

ROSE

so i really need to find out if im approvered for ssi cuz i really need to pay bills and need a working phone so my doc can get a hold of me how do i get them to hurry and make the decision

Hi Rose,

Hi Rose,
If your condition is one that requires urgent care, the SSA may expedite your claim, as in the case of people with conditions on the Compassionate Allowance list.

My son was approve for ssi

My son was approve for ssi and his back pay was $2,199.00 would he receive another lumpsum or that's was his whole lump sum.

Hi Shawanda,

Hi Shawanda,
It may be the only lump sum that you would receive, the SSA generally pays out a maximum of $2000 for lump sums with the exception of the final sum, which can be any amount.

I received a letter stating

I received a letter stating my son was fully favorable for ssi and back pay. He received his first monthly benefit of $733 in May 2016. Now in August 2016 I received a letter stating that my son lawyer was getting their fee and also stated that the fee decided for the lawyers was based on the back pay. They also told me what my son was going to receive back. It is September 2016 what is an estimated guess when I will receive the first payment. My son is 12 and disabled. I don't have transportation to get him back and forward to the doctors. We resides in Louisiana. Please Help

My brother just received his

My brother just received his lump sum he have social security so he get his benefits every month but he's staying in a nursing home so they want me to pay them all his benefits accept $30 but now they're saying he has to pay back Medicaid for the years that he's been staying at the facility with his back pay is that true

Generally, if you enter a

Generally, if you enter a nursing home or hospital and Medicaid pays for more than half of the cost of your care, your SSI benefit is limited to $30 a month. As far as the Medicare is concerned, some states do ask to recover funds in the case that a Medicare recipient receives a lump sum of money or source of income.

If I had a IEP in school

If I had a IEP in school learning disabilities and received social security through my father's ssdi until 19 I dropped out in the 10th grade disability payments stopped then . Can I receive adult child benefits plus my off my earnings for ssdi?

Hi Alisha,

Hi Alisha,
If you were determined disabled before 22, you may be eligible for benefits based off of his work record, but not yours, if your father is receiving retirement or disability benefits.

Alisha
Bryan, what I was asking

Bryan, what I was asking would a learning disability be considered a disability? I was receiving the social security because my father was ordered to pay child support for me and my father was on ssdi at the time . Now I'm 44 have my own earnings but also on my online social security past history it shows the benefits I received from him and about receiving as an adult child.

Hi Alisha, it may if the SSA

Hi Alisha, it may if the SSA considers you disabled because of the learning disability.

Alisha
Hi Bryan, I spoke to my local

Hi Bryan, I spoke to my local social security office regarding my ssdi off of my father's earnings and they said they could tell if I had his social security number but he wasn't home so I haven't gotten in touch with him I will have to call him back tomorrow. Lady from Social Security also said you could contact your attorney and see how she is filing your claim and I did call her and she told me that that would be too far back to go and paperwork to check and see. The lady from Social Security said that would be a good idea to make sure because it may bring my ssdi benefit at a higher amount, But I guess my attorney doesn't feel like doing the work SMH!!! My hearing is next month guess I gotta deal with it.

Hi Alisha,

Hi Alisha,
We're happy to help!

Hi Maurice,

Hi Maurice,
She may want to contact the SSA and find out if she is still eligible to receive back pay.

My 12yr old daughter has been

My 12yr old daughter has been receiving ssi since 06 and we just found out they owe back pay of about 5,000,is there a certain period of time or way this money needs to be spent

Hi Joe,

Hi Joe,
any back pay is still subject to income and resource rules and you would need to create a dedicated bank account for it. Here's some more info:

I received two back pay

I received two back pay payments but haven't gotten my last payment and it's been almost 5 year's when will I get my last payment

Hi Jeffrey,

Hi Jeffrey,
We are not affiliated with the SSA and as such we could not determine if you are owed another back pay installment, however I do know that the SSA pays out SSI lump sums in a maximum of three installments, with the first two installments being a maximum of $2000. You may only have qualified for less that $4000 in back pay.

I have won a disability case

I have won a disability case for ssdi, I am getting 8 years of back pay ,i also have 2 boys who are gonna get back pay, one son got ssi the last 3 years, I'm being told that must all be paid back , is this true and why ?

Hi there,

Hi there,
Your son may have received overpayments during that time. Here's some more info:

I'm getting back pay

I'm getting back pay from ssdi, my son is getting as I for the last 3 years, my back pay goes back 8 years, they say I will have to pay back ssi out of my kids back pay, why ? Dss told me years ago this doesn't have to be paid back only if they over paid me

Hi Christopher,

Hi Christopher,
You may have been overpaid for various reasons, including if your income during the time did not match what they calculated your income as. Additionally,your children's SSI payments may be considered as part of your back pay, and so they may not want to pay out double what they have already paid.

I viewed my social security

I viewed my social security disability CD. I had my local Social Security help me fill out my application. I noticed on the CD that the representative that help me fill out the application had made comments because I had called twice and ask concerning questions when I first applied .He said I may need a payee in one of his notes. My psychiatrist checked off on my MRFC forms he filled out I am capable of handling my benefits. I only called because I wanted to ask questions concerning ssi payments . I am now on hearing stage and I have a dire need hearing . Will the judge make me have a payee? I don't spend money frivolously.

Hi Alisha,

Hi Alisha,
I really would not be able to say if you would be assigned a payee as I do not know the details of your case and we are not affiliated with the SSA.

Hi I was denied twice for my

Hi I was denied twice for my ssi benefits I'm on my third appeal I can't work due to being wheelchair bound I have syringhomyelia which is a fluid filled cyst on my spine and severe carpel tunnel in my left wrist the state has cut me off due to the fact that I have been receiving benefits for a year now I was wondering would I be eligible for emergency advance payment until I get a court date

Hi Jasmine,

Hi Jasmine,
You may be eligible for presumptive disability, however it may be a good idea to speak with a disability advocate or attorney to make sure that you're submitting all the paperwork properly. If you fill out the form on the left we can have one reach out to you.
