Customer Question
Thank you... I retired...

Thank you... I retired disabled November 30, 2016 and applied for SS DISABILITY in January 2017... I was awarded full disability benefits in May, 2017after a Medical review process... am I entitled to back benefits to January , 2017?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

I am 61 as of March 2016... some of my health issues have unfortunately further deteriorated since my retirement in November,2016-after 38+ years with the same employer- back benefits would help me with my costs for two hip and one knee replacement out of pocket for rehab and home care

Past Due Benefits (Back Pay) for social security disability (SSDI) awards are paid retroactivity up to 12 months for DIB claimants. However, retroactivity cannot be before the NH’s date of disability onset or 5-month waiting period.

See here

Thus - your benefits will not be paid for the 5-month waiting period.
