approved but questions

my mother was approved for SSD and was approved the first pass around. she got an award letter and it said she would get back pay for the first 6 months that she had no income (I paid her bills and medicine). it was supposed to come in yesterday. It didn't. She called today and she was told that she wasn't getting any back pay by the guy on the phone.

I'm behind on a lot of my bills because of this. (900 dollar drug bill a month). does she really not get back pay for the first 6 months? I'm very screwed if this is true.

Re: approved but questions

Hi Bengie, unfortunately there is a five month waiting period. Which means you have to be disable or out of work due to the disabilty for the first five months. Then after the five month waiting period if they decide that you're disabled then you start receiving your disability.
