What happens after the Social Security Judge rules in your favor?

You will get an official notice in writing sent to your address.

You should also get a written notice explaining how much you will receive per month, and when payments will start. This should be sent to you within 30 days.

There will also be a notice about your back benefits. This sometimes takes longer up to 60 to 90 days. Social Security must calculate the back benefits. If there is SSI and SSD both involved this will slow down the back benefit process at times.

Strangely, I have had a number of clients who get no notice at all and money shows up in their bank account via direct deposit.
