They social security office is still unable to see back pay info as it is still with the payment processing center.

Re: 1 payment and Backpay

Congrats the rest will seem so easy. Normally your lawyer will get paid and then the back pay is released. As the parent of a disabled child who collects adult child benefits ( our son will soon be 21) on his father's record and because you have children that you where getting SSI on please allow me to give you some advice for the children's futures. Keep every single IEP for your children along with the names and dates of every doctor they see and any tests done keep a notebook or something similar. Remember that they will have to go through the process of being declared disabled under the adult criteria at 18. If they are still in high school at age 18 they will be able to continue to receive benefits as a child on your husband's record until they graduate high school or two months after their 19th birthday whichever occurs first. Even if they are still in school the day they turn 18 start the process of seeing if they qualify as adults if they are still considered disabled at the time.

Re: 1 payment and Backpay

Did his SSI amount change once he started receiving SSDI?

My husband did not get SSDI he retired so our son received survivors benefits from 13 until he was 18. Our family income was to high so he at that time did not receive SSI. Then at 18 as he was still in high school he received both SSI and survivors benefits as he was considered an adult and his own household according to Social Security and his father's and my income was no longer counted. We where lucky that he did not graduate until he was almost 19 which gave us the time to get him declared disabled under the adult criteria while he was still in school and getting survivors benefits. Because I had kept everything as I advised you they started his SSI the month he turned 18 on the temporary 6 months basis which by the end of the 6 months we where finished with the process and he was declared disabled and remains on his Father's record as a Disabled Adult Child which is better as it does not have all the income limits that SSI has. However yes your children's SSI will change. They will count your husband's new income and what they are receiving you will get tons of information in the next month that will break it all down for you. But as an example say each child is still eligible for $420 in SSI. In our example lets say they each are going to get $200 on your husband's record they will not count the first $20 of SSDI so they will reduce the SSI by $180 so now SSI is just $240 and still received on the first and the $200 will be when your husband gets his check.
