I was approved finally after

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,

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.

So if you are eligible for

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,

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.
