Good afternoon Milton,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
You asked: Because I was physically disabled and MENTALLY INCOMPETENT, I should be able to receive back payments from the time she died. yes? Perhaps Social Security has no responsibility to inform a competent person of this rule, however, I was severely incompetent and can prove it!
Unfortunately, under social security regulations, you are not entitled to receive retroactive payments based on your eligibility for a survivor benefit. Survivor benefits are one social security benefit that regardless of reason, social security never pays this benefit retroactively.
The fact that you may have been legally incompetent at the time did not impose a special obligation on social security to tell you of your rights, nor to suggest that you file for a survivor benefit. I'm afraid that you are not entitled to any back benefits from social security based on your stated facts. I am sorry.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.
If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.
Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.
Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,
