How Do I Calculate my Past Due Social Security Disability Benefits?

Once you are awarded Social Security Disability benefits, you will entitled to a monthly check from the United States Treasury. Additionally, most people also get a bigger first check which represents their “past due benefits”. After you have been found to be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, there is a five month waiting period before you become entitled to those benefits. The Social Security Administration will calculate the amount of past due benefits from the five month waiting period through the date of the award and will issue a check in a lump sum.
