SSI Back Pay Installments

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

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 There,

I recommend opening another account with another bank and then notifying the SSA of that change.

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,
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,
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.

Hi Theresa,

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 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,

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