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 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.

I’m sure you aren’t going to see this unless still checking the thread, but I wanted to know if your installation actually made it in October?

Hi Stephen,

It should come in 3 installments, each 6 months apart. You can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 if you are looking for expedited back pay.

So if you are eligible for SSI payments and receive your back pay for certain months, then are told that your resources are over the $2000 limit and lose your benefits, if you go under the $2000 resource limit are you eligible again or is it a final decision

Hi,

You are able to re-apply for benefits. If you work closely with the SSA, there are also ways that you are able to maintain your benefits even if the back pay would put you over the limit.

Hi Gary,

You should receive your first installment about 4 months after you begin receiving benefits. The other installments will then come about 6 months apart.

My son got his first back pay june 10th the letter said he would receive his second payment in six months. I called and spoke with a representative that said i should get my payment in December. My question is will i receive it on the same day as his monthly payment which is going to be early with month because the 1st is a weekend. Or will the deposit be made near when i got the first check which was 06-10-19
