If I file for Social Security disability now and am found to be disabled, how far…
How far back the administration can go to pay Social Security disability benefits depends on which program you’re applying for. If you’re applying for SSDI, or the insured status where you’ve worked for five out of the last 10 years prior to your disability, then the Social Security Administration can go back for one year from your date of application. If you’re applying for SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, which is where you have not worked for five out of the last 10 years or you don’t have sufficient quarters of coverage, your eligibility for benefits starts in the month that you actually apply for benefits.
