I have a friend of a friend who recently got a disability approval. I don't know whether it was SSDI or SSI or both.

I don't know a lot of details about his case, just that he had a heart issue, worked for a short while after that, then became unable to
work and filed for disability. He was over 55 when he applied.

At the ALJ hearing he was given a choice. He could choose the backpay or choose to have the monthly payments moving forward,
but not both. He chose the monthly payments moving forward.

This seems very odd to me. Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

Thank you,
Angie

He said it happened during the hearing. I don't know what the letter stated. Maybe you are right, maybe they changed the AOD because he went back to work for a while after his heart condition began, assuming that his original AOD was right when the heart condition began. It could very well be that he got confused. I still don't understand how changing his AOD would allow him no backpay but only payments moving forward however. Can you give me a timeline example of how this could happen? I am just curious more than anything. I don't know this man very well but according to my friend he didn't have a lawyer so it is possible he didn't know what to do.

If someone applied with an onset date of January 2014 & they agree at the ALJ hearing to amend the onset date to August 2016, then they would get payments going forward but no backpay.
