How to Get a Lump-Sum Social Security Disability Insurance Payment

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are paid by the Social Security Administration upon approval of your application after a waiting period of 5 months from the "onset date." This is the date that you stopped working due to your disability.

Remember, it will take some time for you to visit your doctor or psychologist for a diagnosis, apply for SSDI, and receive approval.

When you are approved, you'll get a lump-sum check for the eligible months (beginning 5 months after your onset date). After that, you'll be paid once a month.

If you are denied benefits or need help contesting your eligibility date, a Social Security Disability advocate can help.

When you are interviewing Social Security Disability representatives ask critical questions, like: how many Social Security Disability hearings do you have per month; do you understand the SSA's POMS (the manual Social Security employees use to process claims); and, do you understand the date last insured and how it affects my disability onset date?

Contact disability representatives LaVan & Neidenberg for assistance with filing or appealing a disability claim - 1-888-234-5758.

Unfortunately, since we did not assist with your claim getting approved we are unaware of the details of your disability claim.
Please contact your local social security office for assistance.
