Usually, letter sent to you by SSA informing you of your claim approval will show amount of benefits you are to receive, as determined by Social Security Office, and when payments will start. The benefits due to you are to be given monthly. Generally, you must be disabled for 5 full calendar months before you can receive your disability benefits for first time.
If it had taken you so long to wait for approval of your benefit claims, it is also likely that you will receive certain amounts for benefits past due. This will be based on how long it took to process and resolve your case and determined actual date your disability began. These back-payments will be given to you in lump sum – SSI give it by installment, depending on its amount size, while social security disability back-pay are paid in a single lump sum.
Certain medical benefits will also be received. You may receive Medicaid if your benefits are derived from supplemental security income (SSI) or Medicare if it is from Social Security Program, also called Retirement Survivors Disability Insurance. Your medical benefits will start coming 2 years after your eligibility for benefits has been established.
