I’m curious about back

I’m curious about back payments...will they automatically deposit funds every 6 months...or do you have to call them...I’m new to this. We received our first installment on 5/11/2017 so I’m guessing the 2nd installment will be 11/11/2017

Hi Kay,

Hi Kay,

It's definitely possible. You might want to check back next week with the SSA if you don't get anything today.

My daughter got her first Ssi check June 1,2017 and her first installment June 5, 2017... the Social security office told me the next installment comes every 6 months. So does that mean December 5,2017 my daughter should be gettin her next installment?

Hi Danae,

Hi Danae,

I really can't say for sure if you'll receive it today but if you don't get it by the end of the week I would contact the SSA.

How can I receive my sons

How can I receive my sons back pay sooner ? Due to sheltering costs , I cannot wait until February when his next installment is due . I was told I could get it sooner .

Hi There,

Hi There,

You may be able to qualify for expedited payments.

Shelia
My last installment is due

My last installment is due Jan.2018 could you tell me when at the beginning or end of the month

Hi Shelia,

Hi Shelia,
SSI payments are always sent on the first of the month, but if you received your first back pay installment mid-month you'll receive the same this time around.

Jasmine
My son gets SSI and I have

My son gets SSI and I have gotten 2 installments of backpay. One was $2,200 and the other was $3,100. Will he get another one because it will be 6 months in january from the last installment and they never write any letter about his backpay. I don't even know how much they owed him in backpay. I am just wondering if anyone thinks he will get another but I read in a comment that the first two installment can't exceed three times the max monthly SSI payments!? The 3,100 did exceed that since $735 was the max for 2017. He was only getting $633 a month though until November it dropped to $490 a month. He isn't getting the max SSI payments if that matters. So does that mean that he got paid two installments and that is all of his backpay?

Hi Jasmine,

Hi Jasmine,
You may want to contact the SSA regarding this as they would have detailed information about your case, you can get in touch with them by calling 1-800-772-1213.

Hello, I was just approved

Hello, I was just approved for SSI. I got my first deposit and it was no where near what I was told. Will they deposit more at anytime? My back pay looks like it’s gonna be installments. I’ve heard so many different stories on how they pay out back pay or ssi. I’ve waited 3 and a half years. I got first deposit on the 7th I think of this month. I have no clue when I’ll get my next deposit or how much it’ll be or anything. Just sitting here waiting lol so if anyone knows anything pls let me know. Yes I’ve read all the comments. Didn’t help. Lol thanks

Hi there,

Hi there,
If you're receiving SSI benefits, the SSA pays out back pay in installments, six months apart.

I was told that I should receive a payment in 3 to 7 days. I have not received anything. Should I call or continue to wait?

I would check in with the SSA by the end of the week if you don't hear anything.

Am I correct in assuming that once the SSI payment is paid, the back payment will be paid at the same time?

Hi There,

Hi There,

Usually! However, sometimes there can be a delay. Wishing you nothing but the best.

Hi i got a letter from ssi

Hi i got a letter from ssi saying my son is approved and he will get his first monthly check in 01/01/2018 and that hes going to get over 6000 in back pay. That i need to set up direct deposit for him so they can deposit it. Ive gave them all the info on the direct deposit already how much longer is it going to be till they deposit his back pay?

HI there,

HI there,
you may receive it about four months after he starts receiving monthly benefits.

Hi Tina,

Every case varies, so I really can't say for sure. You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to see if they can shed some light on that.
