Hi there,
The SSA can ask for the return any money that they had determined they had overpaid you.

I filed in October 2017. My attorney set my onset date as 1/2013...I received a letter saying I was approved for SSI and SSDI. On 8/2/2018 They put my onset date 4/4/2018.
I turned 62 that day, and received my approval letter a week later. I went ahead and went to the SS office to find out what I needed to do next. (Only because my attorneys office had a big turn over, and it has been hard to get anyone to return calls, and I showed up for appt. and the person I was seeing wasn’t there and never even gave me a courstey call.) So I went ahead and accepted the onset date that SSD gave me. So, I was told I will receive no back pay for my SSDI.
But for my SSI I will receive some not sure how much. It will be from 5/18-8/18....Question? Will my attorney still receive his 25% PLUS FEES of my SSI BACK PAY
I was married to my first husband 161/2 years than divorced
Married again but less than 10 years. My first husband is retired and draws his SS could I draw my SSDI off of his because he made a lot more than me? My SSDI is only going to be 1069
Monthly. Thank you
