What would you like to do?
When you are awarded Social Security disability benefits, you do not receive benefits beginning on your onset date. Rather, there is a 5 month "waiting period" before benefits begin. As a practical matter, however, it is often a 6 month waiting period. This is because the waiting period is 5 full months of disability. So if you have partial month, that month simply doesn't count. For example, if you became unable to work on the 2nd day of the month, that whole first month would not count, since it is a partial month of disability. So the effective waiting period can be as long as six months before benefits are due. For SSI benefits, there is no waiting period. Benefits accrue beginning the day you file for benefits.

Thanks for the feedback!
If you purchased disability insurance on your car loan do they still have to pay the payment every month if you received social security disability?
Answer Probably. What does your policy say?
The retro pay am talking about is social security disability back pay seems like 6 month wait is to long is it?
I think it's way too long. I am homeless on the streets of California and it will be 6 months for me on the 29th of November. I won my case and was approved for disability and… ssi on may 29th and I'm still waiting. It gets cold out here!!! I don't think they really care. I read a letter on SS website that said 18,000 plus people died over a three year period while waiting for social security. I am a U.S. veteran, I was hit hardest by hurricane Katrina in Biloxi, MS and I am 100% disabled and homeless for over 2 years now. No I don't think they care about when they are going to pay us or however long it takes. I am glad to see that someone else is also concerned....HANG IN THERE !! IT WILL EVENTUALLY COME......... BEN
You can't. An employer may withhold FOR social security.
How much money can I earn monthly while on Social Security disability Insurance
When people refer to "Social Security," they general mean retirement benefits. SSDI is Social Security Disability Insurance, which is paid from the same fund, but available on…ly to disabled people who are below full retirement age. If you're asking whether you can receive both Social Security retirement and Social Security disability benefits, the answer is no. If you meet SSA guidelines for disability, you receive SSDI until you become ineligible or reach retirement age, whichever occurs first. If you remain on SSDI until retirement, your Social Security benefits automatically convert from disability to retirement. You can't receive both at the same time. If you're asking whether you can receive private disability insurance payments after you begin receiving Social Security disability or retirement benefits, that depends on the policy. Consult with your insurance agent or employer for more information.
what is the limit on holding social security for 2013
Yes. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected.
