SSI Back Pay Installments

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 12/10/2015 - 12:41

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 Armesia,

Typically your first installment of back pay comes about four months after you begin receiving your benefits.

Hi David,

If you're looking for what your back pay is or if you are receiving any, you'll have to contact the SSA. Their number is 1-800-772-1213. If you received an awards letter already, then it's likely also listed there!

His first monthly payment was 9/19
I called they said they have 45 days from Dec 9 to make the first back pay payment I was wondering if it was business days or does the weekends count

Hello my son's first installment back pay was on July 8 2019. I called January 9 2020 and they said it will be deposited this month that's longer than 6 months just wondering what's the hold up. I will be contacted them in the morning.

Hi Eduardo,

Back pay typically comes in 3 installment about 4 months apart, so you should receive your next installment about 4 months after your last one.

Hi Tammy,

Back pay typically comes about 6 months apart, so your next installment should be in April.

I was wondering why my second backpay installment hadn’t came in yet ! I receive the first rather fast and still owed ! Letter said it would come in installments with my regular monthly pay! It’s been about 8 months and I still haven’t seen NOTHING!! Why do they say I will receive it one way and then I don’t receive any! Lawyer already has been paid . And I didn’t get back pay from when I first applied because I had no insurance to see doctors but went to emergency rooms instead! But my daughter end up paying for my doctor visits for 8 month so I receive back pay from there.! Anyways I’m still waiting on second installment ! What can I do ? Or is it I just have to wait ! I still owe my daughter money from the doctor appts and children for carry y bills while I was unable .

Hi There,

I think the best bet would to be to contact the SSA directly and find out why there is a delay. Their number is 1-800-772-1213. You can also make an appointment to visit your local SSA office if you'd like to discuss this in person.

Hi Dylan,

Back pay generally comes about 4 months after you begin receiving ssi and then in 6 month intervals. I would recommend giving a call to your SSA office to get more information on the status of your check.
