    That is so great!!!!!

    Yes, they will send you a retroactive check going back to when you were first disabled. I got mine all in one lump sum.

    What a weight off your shoulders!!

    of Shirley Temples or Buck Rogers!! I'll take a double!!

    just my story only...first time closed case...i had hearing 7/08/04....i didn't get my ssdi check direct deposited until january 21, 2005....

    my son's ssdi direct deposit for that case didn't recieve until 11/01/05...i had to pull teeth!

    then on my current status pay that i am on now...i won at the initial phase...no reconsideration....no hearing...
    i had dr. ssa appts. all done by jluy 05...i got the money for me only dec 05...

    i am still waiting for my son's retro active from 10/04 current status case still as we speak today....

    i just called my congressmans office and spoke w/emma and she said give her until monday to talk to jenni kim and see what they can do to get baltimore to expediate the money they still owe me on my current status case....

    they took out 5,500 for an attorney's fee, which i had no attorney at all...i won at initial phase didn't need one...then i am waiting for the retro active part for my son...

    my advice is right now since you know you won...you can go into you local office and ask for a hardship check for upt to 999.00 on the stop...they will give it to you trust me i did it....you do have to pay it back but if you need it to get by the you do it...

    some people will have it in their accts. right away and some just plain old have to fight for it...

    and what i advise you to do as well...it appears you may have had children that were under the age of 18 or in high school when you were disabled....you need to fill out paperwork at the office to get payment for the children...if you are entitiled...you do not have to have the checks written in their individual names....at all

    i have direct deposit into a custodial account and he can only take money out if i am with him....but that doesn't happen i use it for rent etc...for him....


    good luck
