I am new to this forum, this is my story. I applied for ssdi in 2003 finally got approved in Oct 2011. Received my decision letter in Jan 2012 and to this date May 26,2012 no award letter nor monies deposited into my account. My many calls to my local office and 800 number led to no avail. I went to my local office to find out the status of the claim. I was then told I was approved for ssdi and ssi from the first window rep and my ssdi back pay was on hold until they decided if i was entitled to ssi back pay. Went to second window and was told i was not getting ssi and my ssdi check is due to be released in July 2012. I added 5 of my minor children to my benefits that day, and was told my 6th child whom was 13 at the time of the original application(now 21) was entitled to to back pay until her 18th birthday. This mean she will 5yrs back pay. My 21yr old and I went to the local office May 25th to add her on the benefit( we both had to go since she is now an adult). We were told it would take 30-60 days for her to get her lump some and my attorney payment was processed on May 23,2012. All I can do is wait, well I waited 9yrs i guess another 1-2 months wont hurt. Hope no one else goes through this loooooooooong process.
