    SSDI Back Pay Question

    What is the name of your state? Tennessee

    I filed for SSDI 8/10/2005

    I won on appeal but the Judge said disability started 2/14/2006

    My question is how far back do they go for back pay?

    Will mine be from August 2006 to the time they start monthly payments?

    I read somewhere that the maximum back pay is only one year, is that true?

    This is my first post and I'm glad I found this website. I hope someone can answer my questions. Thanks in advance.

    I looked at the url you gave me and so there is a maximum of one year for back pay with SSDI?

    What was your date of disability? The maximum of one year for back pay refers to when your disability began and when you first file for SSDI. If you file for disability within one year of becoming disabled, you get back pay from your date of disability less a six month wait period. If you wait longer than one year from onset of your disability before filing for SSDI, the one year applies.

    My date of diability was 2/14/06. I'm more confused (sorry ) now. I called my local SSA and he said back pay can be more than one year.

    Thanks,

    Read what the last poster stated .

    Yes the cite I posted and it's contents are confusing , but it was put into perspective .

    SSA has determined you disability onset date was 2/14/06 .

    I think it's 5 months waiting period from that date , so figure your back pay from 5 months after 2/14/06 .
