SSI Back Pay Installments

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Does anybody know whether that SSI back pay comes on a certain day of the month? I got my first installment the same week I was approved for SSI it came on the same day I got my first benefit. But I should receive one in January and I'm trying to figure out when I will see it? If anyone has any experience with receiving them in would love to hear about it!

Hi Stacey,

We are not affiliated with the SSA, you can call the SSA to speak with a representative who may be able to help you. Their number is 1-800-772-1213.

Hi there,

If you are eligible for back pay, then you should find the amount in your awards letter. Back pay typically comes 4 months after you begin receiving your disability benefits.

I was approved finally after 7 years of fighting the SSA. Now it’s been 6 months and I have yet to receive any portion of any back pay... in 6 more months it’ll be an entire year of waiting for a first installment back payment. I’ve read nothing anywhere on the web, that says this is the usual. I’m livid!

Hi Taylor,

That does seem like it is longer than it should be. Generally it takes around four months for back pay to arrive after the start of monthly benefits. I would contact the SSA and speak with a represeantive from there.
