Re: Deniel of SSDI widows backpay
You should still receive some of your other backpay. What they usually do is subtract SOME of what you got from SSI from the SSDI because a portion of it is for the same time period. You should still get an additional amount. I got both SSI and SSDI for backpay, but I got 3 or 4 letters in all explaining how the backpayments work. They make it sound very confusing. Have you tried calling the 1800 number to ask about this? When did you get your SSI backpayment? It seems to me it took about 3 payments to get ALL my backpay, and my SSDI came about 6 weeks after the SSI.
