The Social Security Administration’s disability back pay is due if you had positive approval that you should be receiving a disability benefit. A valid disability status will check all the following requirements:
- Inability to work at the previous job
- Inability to adjust to a new occupation due to medical unfitness
- The medical conditions will last for at least one year
The period of waiting for approval has benefits that are known as back pay benefits. This amount is what you were waiting for as the SSA reviewed your application.
What is disability back pay?
It is a monetary deposit into your account, to cover the waiting period between the date of application for benefits and the date of approval. The coverage is essential because approvals could take months or years. They are especially vital when you had to appeal a denial.
How does the SSA determine the back pay?
It depends on to the dates you made a claim, after a review by the administrative law judge. The SSA labels this date as ‘established onset date.’ The amount of pay varies with the individual’s benefits. The specificity of the amount varies. It follows the approvals of either the Security Disability Insurance, or the Supplemental Security Income, or both.
Disability back pay builds up from the established onset date. You will receive installments after a successful evaluation of the case. The SSA does not deposit a lump sum amount for SSI back pay but it may for the SSDI back pay.
How long does it take to receive back pay?
Sometimes the deposition is instant, and other times, it takes longer because the administrative law judge may be reviewing the case.
SSDI disability benefits have a standard five-month waiting period before approval. The duration Hearings of denials could range from any duration of less than a year or up to 24 months.
Upon approval, the back pay will be automatic a couple of months after you are already receiving the monthly benefit. National Disability Benefits will make the necessary follow-ups with the SSA in case of any delays, which typically happens after the fourth month.
How will you receive the payments?
The payments are a direct deposit into your account. Back pay of the Supplemental Security Income Federal Benefit will be deposited in three installments if it exceeds more than three counts.
What happens afterward?
Social Security may adjust the benefits per their offset provisions. The amount will also vary according to your income.
