What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? North Carolina
I'll break this down as coherently and brief as possible.
After 2 years my disability claim was approved.
Eventually I received a letter from SSA telling me my monthly income ($700+) and my back pay ($14K+)
Meanwhile, SSI sent a letter letting me know I did not qualify for monthly income from them but will receive a back pay (something like $8K) in increments of course.
SSI deposited $2100 almost right away.
Weeks later, I receive a deposit from "US Treasury-Soc Sec" (SSD) for roughly $4K. This was back pay from SSA disability.
Because this lump sum back pay was considerably less than I was told ($14K), I called SSA and asked what's up. I was told something that made no sense to me. Something about SSI taking care of back pay and therefore they only owed me this $4k back payment.
I have never received any letter or other form of contact regarding this change. It was completely out of the blue and I am especially suspicious because I never received any notice or explanation for this, before or since.
What's going on? Since the case has concluded following approval, my attorney has become unreachable.
