Re: SSI backpay Social Security law
In order to compute back benefits for SSI, the Social Security Administration must verify income and resources for each and every month of disability during the period in which back benefits are due. This process can take some time and it is not at all unusual to begin receiving current benefits before receiving back benefits.
If SSA has already given you a dollar amount of the back pay you will receive, then you should follow up with a phone call to your local Social Security field office if you have not received said benefits within 6 weeks from the date of the letter stating the amount to be paid.
