I was recently awarded SSDI with a disability date going back three years which they will owe me basically 2 1/2 of give or take.
I received a bench decision the day of the hearing and have received a letter confirming of such - stating if I do not hear from SS take the letter and go to the SS office.
However, I have spoke to two different people who have been on workers' comp and have been awarded ss disability on 12/06 and the other 2/07 who have not received a dime from SS. They have not received anything stating what they should receive a month, what they should receive in back pay, zip - zero - zilch!
I am in a state where the back log was long for the ADL hearing. I waited 2 1/2 years just for the hearing and now to be told GOOD LUCK getting your money from SS.
To top it off my attorney has already sent me a bill for requesting my medical bills and case review from SS - he wants his money so he can clear his books (for some reason I don't think SS will make him wait on his money).
I know that SS has to do the magic with what you are/were receiving in TTD, subtract what you have paid in attorney fees, medical, etc, - I am just curious if this is standard if you are awarded SSDI while on workers' comp.
I might add the two people that I mentioned above are both on permanent total - I am still on temporary total (not that it makes any difference).
Thank you for any insight you may have.
