When Do Benefits Start?

Benefits will start in the first month of your date of entitlement. It is not given the day the finding of disability is given because there is a five-month waiting period. In addition, back payments are limited to 12 months prior to the application for benefits.

How Much Will My Benefits Be?

Your Social Security file will have the amount you are going to receive. It is possible that there will be a recalculation of the amount prior to you being paid. There is also a cost of living raise annually in December.

Will I Receive an Explanation of Benefits From the Social Security Administration?

I, your Waterloo disability lawyer will explain the Notice of Award. This will tell you when your benefits begin and how much you are going to receive including back benefits. It will also inform you of the amount taken out for my fees.
