I wanted to let you all know that I still have not received my backpay.I was approved on September 2.I get my first check this month on the 26th.Everytime i talk to social security, i get a different date.I was told it could take 6 months to receive my backpay.I am just beside my self,it has
been 3 years for me.maybe someone could give me some info on this.my lawyer got his check,$5,300 two weeks a go.Thank you all for letting me vent.God bless each of you.
We live in Indiana and ny hubby waited 4 years for a decision and then waited another 5 months for his backpay and his first monthly check. Don't know if this helps but just a little information for you
I really believe that Social Security has no set policy, or standard on when you will recieve your payments. I know of 3 friends of my friends, one got her backpay a month after her case was one, another 4 months, and another 5 months (with small payments). They all recieved there first check within a month of winning there case, so at least that is consistant. I hope it comes soon. I just got word mine was approved after 6 years -Oct 31st, I have yet to recieve an award letter or anything from payment center. Good luck to you.
After going over all the post on "waiting for backpay" now im really depressed. I just got approved in October, now November is almost over, still no word. Some of you have waited a lot longer, I can't imagen your stress level right now.
I waited 6 years to get this far, now the waiting is still going on. I do get help from this site, and I would like to ask everyone out there waiting to let me know your latest updates, it helps to know I am not alone.
