Theoretically, you should have received your benefits already. It typically takes 2-3 months to get the benefits. Now, your lawyer can take 25% or 6,000 of the benefits - and SSA wlll deduct that from your payment. I'm sure he's as excited to get paid as you are. You're only a few weeks behind, but I would definitely stay on top of it. Your attorney should as well

I know that you are frustrated, but the good thing is that once your benefits start coming, they will continue on pretty seamlessly.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
