Not Sure

Question

Not sure when I will get my back pay. The guy at ssa said a letter has been sent, so I hope it will be this week. Some say you get the money before you get the letter. Just have to wait.

Sparkle, I'm in the same boat. Got my award letter two weeks ago today. Havent seen the back pay yet. I know it hard to be patient. Especially if you are is broke and behind on bills as I am. I thought the money would deposit sooner than this. Still, I am glad I was approved and have no choice but wait it out. Maybe you will have better luck. Hang in there.

Once Social Security notifies you they send the money fairly quickly. Good Luck to both of you

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

I know this is alot, and some of the answer will come off the top of your head, but it's all good. Just give the ole girls some hope and happiness!!!:lol:

I know I will get the back pay, but I need to get a better understanding of the way ssd works.

1. I applied on Sept 9th 2011

2. Got approved on Nov 9th

3. Got a call from ssa Nov 14 @ 9am in the heckin morning :lol: stating that I was approved and a letter will be sent to me

4. SSA told me that I would get back pay back from Aug 2010.

Now what I am trying to understand is would I have to wait 5 months from Nov 9th which would be April or maybe May of 2012 to get my first check, or would they go back to Aug of 2010 to Aug 2011 for my back pay?

How long before I get my back pay? and how soon until will I got the letter?

What would be the first month for me to get a check?

What I came up with is If It was from the date I applied than my first check would come in Jan, or Fed. but if its from the date that I was approved which is Nov. than my first check would be April or May of 2012.

Now after I receive my letter would I get my back pay about one week ( I was told) after my letter or before my letter.

I know this is a lot, and I truly hope I made myself clear to get some understanding, and have some hope that I will get some money before my house note comes around to be paid. I feel I could make it until Feb about after that it's going to be hard..

Hi Sparkle. I called the 800# today. The lady said that it has been 3 weeks since my approval and they have up to 6 weeks to release your back pay. And to call back after three weeks if I haven't received it. She told my how much back pay I was getting and everything. I couldn't pin her down about when the money would be released. It sucks but we both just have to wait.

Your award letter will answer most of your questions. It sounds to me like your getting the max 12months of retro plus the time since you applied. But I am no expert. Your award letter will explain everything for sure. I bet you will get it this week. Hang in there and be patient. I could default on my home loan on next month. I understand the stress this can cause. I'll let you know if I hear something. Mike

Thanks Mike, I feel we both will be getting some moo la soon. By the lady saying call back in 3 weeks I feel you are just a phone call away from that money. I was told some get the money in the bank before the letter comes. Going to call my ssa office right now and see what they say and will Get back too you soon. Thanks you give me hope.
