You Don’t Need to Be a Genius to Understand What the Retroactive Dollar Amount is in an Social Security Disability Case

Congratulations! You have received a letter from the Social Security office awarding you Social Security Disability benefits, but how much are you going to get? The Social Security Administration will pay you on a monthly basis, but will also pay you for the period time that it took to approve your application.

You receive a retroactive payment, which is a one time lump sum payment that represents the period time that you were entitled to benefits.

There is however, a five, four month calendar waiting period before you are entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. The five month waiting period is mandatory in every Social Security Disability case.
