Re: Did I get both SSDI and SSI?

With me i got to different letters, one from SSI, the other from SSDI. Both stated the amount that they would direct deposit.

I got kicked off SSI a month after my SSDI started, I then made to much on SSDI to qualify for SSI, but got all backpay for 6 years from both.

If you only get 403.00 SSDI you will get some from SSI, like BlueSkies said, 403.00 is a very low amount to live on.
Congrats on winning, the worst is over.
