Re: how much back pay can one receive if applied for ssi in 1998 to the year 2008
Backpay for SSI can go back to the day you applied for SSI. The date is on your application form is what is used. So, if you applied January, 2008, and were approved in October, 2008, you would receive backpay starting with January, 2008.
Did you apply in 1998, and still haven't been approved or denied??
