Social Security Disability & SSI: Back-due Benefits

91ddd6_60c833298e3f44bfba995f42c6bb3669.jpgOne of the most potentially confusing aspects about SSI & Social Security Disability benefits is the way each of these separate programs handles back-due benefits. The phrase 'back-due benefits' is an umbrella term that refers to any benefits that SSA pays a client because they have determined that the client has been disabled for some time, and therefore they (SSA) should have been paying the client in the past. The rules for payments of this type vary somewhat compared to the rules for 'future' benefits, ie ongoing monthly benefits that a claimantant will be paid after being awarded benefits.
