Around here, in an SSI only case, about 3 weeks after the favorable decision you are called to the local Social Security office to update your income and resources - that is, to make sure you have not inherited a bunch of money or anything like that. Roughly a month and a half after that you might get your back time check and start getting your monthly check.

You will wait forever if you don't go down and produce all of the documents they ask for.

The time will vary a lot around the country.

The back payment in an SSI case is supposed to be for all months starting the later of when you applied or when you became disabled. If you have had several applications, sometimes but not always you can get benefits back to the date of an earlier application.

If the Administration allows you, but at a later date than the date you think you became disabled, you can appeal that. But be careful, the whole case is on appeal.

About how long after the judge sent me my favorable decision should I get my first check and back pay. I called the local office and they said it was at the Baltimore paying office...Thanks

On my question above it is for SSD, I saw the answer for SSI and did not know if it was the same amount of time...Mike

Right. It is not the same amount of time. There are two answers, depending. If you have a Social Security Disability case and do not have an SSI case, right now around here, and I think in most of the country, it is taking about 2 months from the date of your favorable decision at the ALJ level. At that point, you get a notice explaining how much you are entitled to, a lump sum check, and a monthly check, all within a few weeks of each other.

If you also have an SSI case, the answer is the same, except that the lump sum check, if any, comes much later; often as much as 3 months later. They have to send the SSI file to Baltimore where they calculate the SSI offset.
