Did it come in a separate check. . And did it show on your ss online account in payment history

Hi Linda,

Hi Linda,
Back pay comes separately from monthly benefits, and it may be reflected in your payment history.

Hello, I've been

Hello, I've been reading some of the questions and answers. I got approved on August 2017 for both SSI & SSDI. I got the first monthly payment until January 2018, some of the other people said they got their first lump sum 4 months later. So SSI sends the lump sum in 3 installments correct? How long does SSDI take to send the lump sum? And is it also in installments? Please advise,
Thank You

Hi Brandy,

Hi Brandy,
You are correct--SSDI should be about four months after, and it'll all be at once. SSI is indeed in three payments, each one 6 months after the prior.

Diane Morales
I was supposed to have

I was supposed to have received my back pay from my disability on September 2017, but never received it. So they said it was sent out, but I never received it, so they reissued me a check for my first back pay January, now when will i get my 2nd installment?

Hi Diane,

Hi Diane,
If you got your first check in January, you'll receive your second check in June and your final check in December.

I want to know if l can get

I want to know if l can get back pay if my already on SSI. I was trying to get Disables before. They told me we have to more we were over what the standard were. I was trying to get SSI in 2008. When l could work anymore that is when they were telling me l had to more. Been trying to get SSI and i just got it a little over a year ago. Because l wasn't trying to get the back pay from SSI. But things l changed not. Me and my wife are separated
And she has filed for Divorce. I want to know if not that things have changed can l get the back pay i was trying for from before. Because l have SSI not but can l get the back pay from 2008 or not. I hope you understand what l wrote and mean. Please let me know.

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,
I am sorry to hear that! It's possible that your wife's income disqualified you from SSI when you applied in 2008, so it's possible you will not be entitled to any back pay prior to your separation.

Hi Kevin,

Hi Kevin,
That's great, congratulations on your approval! Unfortunately attorneys always receive the payments first, but your benefits should start in just a couple of months.

You may be able to qualify for expedited payments from the SSA. The SSA has a section on its website regarding what next steps to take. Best of luck!

My son was awarded disability

My son was awarded disability back pay at the end of 2015. Jan 2016 I got his first installment, they never sent the second, I called them and asked them if I was suppose to get it at 6 months and they claimed they didn’t know what happened and I got his second Dec 2016, I was expected to get his last one six months from then. I just checked his account and they never made it and it’s been 14 months!!! I am going to be calling them because the last one is approx. $8,000.00. They still have to make that payment because they never made it even though I just now realized it right??

Hi Christina,

Hi Christina,

I am so sorry to hear about that. I would recommend speaking with a Social Security attorney or advocate regarding that situation.

Julie

Hi Julie,

Hi Julie,

I would contact the SSA about that. You can call them at 1-800-772-1213.

I am waiting for my alj

I am waiting for my alj hearing right now and expect a favorable decision. Was reading information on the Okla. site a few days ago[the state I live in] and it said that no matter the length of time it takes until you're approved you will only recieve twelve months of backpay. Is this correct?
