Social Security Back Pay

Social Security provides a benefit for disability individual along with many other benefits. Individuals will be able to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits, and are often able to receive Social Security Disability Back Pay for the time that they are waiting for their application to be approved. But how does the Social Security Disability Back Pay work? How far back does the Social Security Disability Back Pay go? These and other questions regarding Social Security Back Pay have been answered below by the Experts.

What can a person do if they have not received their Social Security Disability Back Pay and their Social Security Insurance Back Pay?

If a person has filed for a Social Security Disability and Social Security Insurance concurrent claim this could be the reason for the delay in payment. When an individual files for Social Security Disability and Social Security Insurance will slow down the payment of back benefits and the reason is that the Social Security Administration calculates for the Social Security Insurance for the 5 month waiting period for Social Security Disability. Social Security Insurance back payments are not made in a lump sum they are broke up into thirds and the recipient receives the back pay installments of 1/3 over the course of a year. After they have finished with the calculations for Social Security Insurance Back Pay they begin working on the Social Security Disability Back Pay. It is not uncommon for this to take some time but if the time goes for too long, a person has the right and the ability to contact their congressmen and give them the information of their claim and award, along with the amount of time the individual has been waiting for their back pay. Congressmen have staff that that is actually devoted to problems with Social Security Administration.

What can a person do if they receive a letter saying that their next installment of Social Security Insurance Back Pay is not being processed at this time?

If a person receives a letter from the Social Security Administration stating that their next installment of their Social Security Insurance Back Pay is not being processed at this time. A person may go to their nearest Social Security Administration Office and ask to speak to the manager. When they are able to speak to the manager they need to explain the letter that they received stating that their Social Security Insurance Back Pay is not being processed at this time. They should be able to let the individual know if they will not be receiving a payment and also give a valid reason for them not receiving their Social Security Insurance Back Payment. If they are unable to provide a valid reason, the individual should contact their Congressmen and give the information on their Social Security Insurance award and their Social Security Insurance Back Pay and what the person they spoke to at the Social Security office told them.

If a person has a Long Term Disability that spans over many years and then files for Disability how far back does the Social Security Disability Back Pay go for the Benefits?

If a person that has had a Disability and this has been going on for many years, and have just decided to apply for the Social Security Disability Benefits, the Social Security Disability Back pay will only go as far back as 12 months from the date that the application was filed. If the individual’s Disability has not spanned for many years and has not been going on for over a year, then the Social Security Disability Back Pay will only be for the five month waiting period that all the Social Security Disability applicants must go through.

Can child support be taken from the Social Security Disability Back Pay?

In some cases this will be possible for back Child Support to be withheld from an individual’s Social Security Disability Back Pay. If the person’s Child Support has been taken care of and is still withheld from the individual’s back pay, then the money will be given back to the individual, but the Child Support Office cannot issue the individual a check. They must first issue a check back to the Social Security Administration, who in turn will issue a check to the individual for the monies owed.

Social Security Disability Applicants often receive Social Security Disability Back Pay. Those that apply for Social Security Disability and Social Security Insurance in a concurrent fashion, sometimes receiving Social Security Disability and Social Security Insurance Back Pay. Social Security Insurance Back Pay will be broke into three payments that are spaced out over the course of one year. Social Security Disability Back Pay only goes back as far as 1 year from the time of the application. If a person has questions regarding Social Security Disability Back Pay or Social Security Insurance Back Pay they can ask Experts.
