Social Security Disability and SSI: problems with backpay
I just found this posted on someone's blog: "I cannot believe this! I have been waiting for months for this back pay! I have been getting my monthly disability now for three months and still I haven't received my back pay! It is crazy how Gov't offices can be so different! When I got my disability pay from the VA, the day I got the letter I went checked my account and it was already there! Yet with the Social Security, I have waited in vain! Well the 12th makes it an entire full month since I contacted them and they had said a full month and I should receive it. So if by the 12th, and I'm not holding my breath, it isn't here, then I am going to be calling and expecting answers!"
This would be one area that's ripe for reform, but so far I haven't heard any mention of it. Unfortunately, it is a very common complaint.
