For anyone who's on Social Security Disability: how long did it take to get your retroactive check? I got a letter dated Oct. 11 telling me I would get my first monthly check Nov. 25, and it told me the amount. The letter said I would also be getting a check for retroactive pay, but it didn't say when. I finally called SS's 800 # and a man told me that check would also be coming on or about Nov. 25. I got the regular monthly check on Nov. 25, but not the retroactive check. :Bawling: I called back again and got a different person who told me it would "take a couple of months." I told her it had already been two months. I called back a third time and a man said "just be patient." :shrug: If you are on SS Disability, how long did it take to get your retroactive check? Thank you in advance.
