Understanding back payments for disability benefits

People in New York who are applying for Social Security Disability may face a lengthy process to gain approval, moving from their initial application to, at times, a disability hearing or even further in the appeals process. In many cases, when people are finally approved and begin receiving SSD benefits on a monthly basis, they also receive a lump sum payment from the time their application was filed. While some people may be confused about this payment, it is not a settlement of other claims like pain and suffering or lost wages. It is a back payment of monthly benefits from the time they would have been entitled to begin receiving them.
