    When you got your back pay did they pay you from the date of disability or did they subtract the first 5 months and pay the rest of the time?

    Yes they did subtract the 5 months. I was approved for disability back to the last day I worked which was March 17, 2006. My disability eligibility date is Sept 17, 2006. You have to be "out of work" for 6 months before you are eligible for disability benefits. I don't know why but that's how they do it.

    It was nice to get the backpay but to tell you the truth, I wish I hadn't had to wait so long. It's been really hard these past 2 1/2 years.

    I can imagine how hard it was for you and your family. How wonderful you can breathe a sigh of relief. I feel very fortunate to get anything. I am just shocked that they got this done in 4 months. Also very shocked that I was approved. I have heard such horror stories from others. Last night I slept better than I have for so many months and I think it was because the financial stress is going to be relieved.

    Thanks for you quick response. I feel like I have made several friends on this site and it is nice to know they are there.

    I haven't been on in a while since I lost internet. I am back now (hopefully).

    I bumped a post where people add their testimonies for those who are still waiting. To give them hope and help.

    I also was approved quickly - thank God.

    you don't have to answer every question but if you want to, that would be awesome.
