It was about a month later(following the judges decision) for me to receive backpay. If you had signed up initially for "direct deposit" keep checking your bank balance. They have a habit of not telling you directly when it will be deposited, and overnight (when the little Elves who are in charge of such things...) you can wake up to find that your account is a bit fatter.

I'm also waiting for my backpay. I was being patient. When I saw my 82 year old mother sitting in the yard looking so lonely. I cried and went to the SSA. office to check out my status.i will not throw any stones since I can be pretty bitc.. myself, but I was more sad when I left there.

So I went home called the commisioner at the Social Services dept.
I am responsible for paying them back which I already knew. I also knew that alot of disabilty claims were approved the same time I was so there is alot of cases to fullfill.
So I explained my situation she said she was gonna call the dept. who sends SSA. the warrent that monies were paid. So now when they fax the satisfaction letter they will release the balance to me.
I don't understand why I am getting back-pay from SSI when I receive SSDI monthly ?

Local office cannot force the payment center to expedite, it is only a request. Teleservice center cannot force local office to do anything, it is just a request.

In your timeline, feederband, you do not mention an SSI claim, yet it is agency policy to take concurrent claims in nearly all situations, even when there is no possible SSI eligibility. Are you sure there is no SSI claim? Your award notice would contain a paragraph about holding your back pay pending an SSI decision. It is often the existance of an SSI claim that holds up completion of the Social Security claim.

I started to write a very long missive about why you might have a pending SSI issue even when you think you never had a claim. It got very technical and boring so I deleted it.

Bottom line; It is possible for someone like you who has obvious excess income to have a pending SSI claim or a pending windfall offset issue that is holding up the release of your retroactive benefits. If you did file an SSI claim, you should have a copy of it with your initial application paperwork and the ALJ should have addressed the SSI filing in your fully favorable and you would have the paragraph in your award letter addressing it.

Is there an SSI windfall pending indicator on the MBR? The TSC can answer that question. If there is, action needs to be taken by the payment center, sometimes with the assistance of the field office. I know this because I am the person in the FO who gets all these phone calls.

I too am waiting for my back pay, approved May 13th. I did concurrently apply for SSI.I will be making too much in SSDI to receive SSI though,I may be getting some SSI, I think it must be for the first 5 months after Disability Onset Date, the waiting period SSDI requires.

I guess as long as they don't hold my regular monthly payments , I can wait for the back pay.I was told my first payment would come July 16th. I don't understand why this first payment is for only a half a months amount, do they withhold all of the Medicare premiums from the time one is approved for Medicare ( I was eligible to receive Medicare January 2008) and take it out of the first months payment? I should be getting $1137 and the letter said my first months payment would only be $450 something, just doesn't make sense

OK, now I received a letter saying that the date I will receive payments has been changed and the payment will come on or about the 3rd of each month! What the heck? Fine with me , but why? One reason stated for this is that the person may be receiving SSI, but I was told that my SSDI was too much and I was ineligible for SSI. Does this mean they changed their minds and I will now receive SSI or is it because I may be due some SSI back pay?

LOL! Well they sure do want to make it confusing!
