Hi, I have a question about backpay, approximatly how long does it take to recieve it? I won my SSDI in Nov. 2010 with a date of onset of May 2010. Thats when I had revision surgery for a failed fusion. The original surgery was in Sept. of 2008. My lawyer and I appealed the date of onset to be reset to Sept. 2008. We expected to get a date to go in front of an ALJ but I got a letter from them Friday....fully favorable!!! No ALJ hearing, no court....ect!
So my date of onset is now officially Sept. 2008. The letter siad they had figured the amount for attorney fees (no actual figures). Anyway,just wondering how long to see the deposit since I have some bills that would be great to payoff! Oh, I do have direct deposit. I will be talking to my lawyer tomarrow but just wanted to throw this out there anyway. Thanks
