I turned in all my paper work. How long will it be before I find out what I am getting and when it starts coming?
JA: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

What's the date you requested your benefits to start?

It normally takes Social Security 3-4 months to process your application for benefits.

If you have an online Social Security account, you can find out your monthly benefit amount there.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

As I mentioned, it takes 3-4 months for Social Security to process your application for benefits.

If you applied in August, you will not receive a payment until November or December.
