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!

Is there anyway I can get second installment quicker. Like for your child's needs, like tutoring and learning tools

Hi Karina,

You should try to open another account and let the SSA know immediately after, so they have the most up to date information.

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,
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.

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