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!

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?

Hi Lynn,

Every case is different, but you get backpay from your disability onset date and that date varies from case to case.

Hi Tye,

Usually applicants will receive their first installment of SSDI back pay 60 days after being approved for disability.

Hi Patricia,

I am honestly not sure. You can contact the SSA to find out specifically what will happen. Their number is 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Laura,

Backpay installments usually come 6 months apart so you should be receiving it sometime this month. If you don't, you can contact the SSA.

Hi Lester,

It can take up to four months from when first benefit check was received to receive backpay. You can try contacting the SSA.

Hi There,

I believe it should be listed in your award letter. If not, I would call the SSA to find out. Their number is 1-800-772-1213.
