So confused by SSI Letter
« on: February 10, 2017, 11:39:34 AM »
I have NO idea what they are trying to say in this letter. Backstory is that I started collecting SS Retirement in 2015. I didn't get approved for Disability until 2016 and then they sent me a letter telling me I was getting SSI back payments for March 2016 to August 2016, totaling $534. I received that $534 in two back payments, but now they're saying in this letter that they paid me for SSI benefits going back to 2010.
Huh? No they didn't. I literally received no money from Social Security from ANY benefit program until 2015 when I started collecting SS Retirement. The only back pay I've ever received was that $534.

Contact for link to letter.

I think the 2010 is a mistake. Have you called them ? The 5 months SSI you received was for the 5 month waiting period for SSDI.

I'm waiting for a call back since the person I spoke to said she couldn't help. I agree though that the 2010 is a mistake. That said, I still have no idea what the rest of the letter is talking about. Guessing this isn't a "normal" letter.

Was your retirement more than $753 a month ? If it was not, do you have other income or resources that exceed $2,000 if you are single ?

No, my retirement was about $550/mo and no income/resources in excess of $2,000.

I was thinking you might have been receiving Early Retirement and SSI. But, I was wrong.  You can't receive SSI if you are not disabled before age 65. I apologize for the confusion.
