Obtaining benefits during an appeal

New York residents and others who receive disability benefits may have their cases reviewed every three to seven years. After a review, it is possible that benefits will be suspended because an individual's condition has improved significantly. Benefits could also be stopped if a person begins to earn a gainful income. Those who have had their benefits suspended may wish to appeal the decision, and an appeal must be made within 65 days of receiving the notice.

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.
