Will I get a back payment if I get approved for disability with Lupus?
The majority of individuals filing for disability will end up receiving some amount of back pay. That is simply due to the fact that most claims involve appeals and go on for an extended period of time.
Therefore if you apply for disability based on lupus, you may very well get a back payment of disability benefits if you are approved for disability. To explain a bit further, Social Security Disability back payments are controlled by the date you file your application for disability. If you have not been able to work, or your earnings are under the SGA monthly earnings limit for seventeen months prior to your filing for disability, you may even receive twelve months of retroactive disability benefits.
Why not seventeen months of disability benefits? Because Social Security has a five-month waiting period for which Social Security Disability benefits are never paid. The back payment of benefits will continue to increase each month for the life of your disability claim.
If you are approved at a disability hearing for lupus, your back payment of disability benefits could be substantial.
Conversely, if you file your disability claim the day you stop working there may not be any retroactive benefits if you are approved for disability on your initial disability claim for lupus. You will receive a back payment of benefits if you are approved during the appeal process provided you are approved after the five-month waiting period.
