If you had to wait a significant amount of time in order to receive the
Social Security Disability Insurance that you were rightfully entitled
to, then you may be able to receive back pay for the months that you could
have been receiving disability insurance but were not due to the tardiness
of the government agency.
According to Wired PR News, many people are eligible for back pay when
they receive social security benefits, and some people are even eligible
for retroactive benefits. These payments will need to be provided for
time prior to when the individual filed for disability. Social Security
will often award this to applicants for up to one year prior to their
date of filing the claim. This is typically reserved for very serious
cases where it would be a great benefit for the recipient to have the
The approved amount of back pay that you can expect to receive will depend
on how much SSA Tax was withheld during your employment, the date of your
application, and the date that you became disabled. Individuals will need
to make sure that they have accurate details concerning these items if
they want to receive the back pay. Remember that there is always a mandatory
waiting period of five months for all eligible claimants before they will be paid.
The back pay, if awarded, will be granted to the claimant in a lump sum.
Social Security will determine how much back pay is warranted in your
case and you will be notified that you have been paid this financial award.
If you want more information about back pay or believe that you are eligible
and weren't able to receive the money that you need, then you need an
