I was awarded SSDI in 2018, at age 63, with an onset date of 2014. Upon reaching FRA, SSA recalculated my benefit and discovered I was underpaid, adjusted my monthly benefit, and paying retroactively to July 2021 (FRA). As this was unexpected, I was rather appreciative. However, the question of a possible underpayment going back months, if not years, was difficult to ignore.
Filing An Appeal
My husband died in 2020 my petition for survivor spouse was denied and I appealed the decision on time on March 2021 I had have any answers should I need to contact the Social Security or wait for their response Thanks
Do I have any recourse against my disability lawyer or some type of appeal for just my back pay. I filed in Dec 2015 went to adm. law judge in 2018 and approved. However, the Adm. Law Judge only had the evaluation of a doctor I had seen at the behest of my atty in 2018. When I hired him I obtained and gave my atty.
I misunderstood the decision to deny me survivors/widow benefits. I was waiting on my funds to be deposited. After the 5th month, I called.I had received a letter stated that if I received a pension I would not receive benefits but the next line said my benefit would be $1315.70 a month. I would be getting that the 4th Wednesday monthly. I really needed these benefits. I need to appeal this decision.
What do I put in the big box on form ssa statement of claimant appealing my disability check
Hi. I'm not sure what form you're referring to. If you're filing for reconsideration, which is the first appeals step, you would use form SSA-561. In the areas provided on the form you would explain what issue you're appealing, and why you disagree with Social Security's determination.
Need a sample letter to appeal cutting my benefits
Hi. I'm sorry, but I don't know of any sample appeal letters. There are a multitude of different reasons why people file appeals, so it would likely be impossible to find a sample that would address your specific problem.

The Social Security Administration applied the WEP to my benefit. I immediately appealed the decision on-line. This was in March of 2020 and there is still no resolution. . Is there any place within Social Security to appeal the appeal before I take this to my congressional representative?
SSA has reduced my husband's SS benefit because he is also receiving a Canadian pension. The problem is that the WEP reduction was based on his pension in Canadian dollars, which resulted in a reduction of more than 50% of his Canadian pension, if converted to US dollars. He appealed this decision and after waiting 5 months for SSA's reply they didn't even address the concern of not converting Canadian dollars to US dollars. The "form" letter indicated that he would have to go through an ALJ hearing as the next step.
I am about to file an appeal due to the windfall clause. I worked in Switzerland over a 10 year period and receive a small AVS amount from them. When I filed for retirement (66) in February my benefit was lowered by $411 dollars. Here’s the deal. I asked for an explanation and was sent only a faded form letter. I am filing the appeal to see the actual calculations used based on all of the information I provided. I want to make sure the places I worked for in CH paid properly and that my ex’s income was included. Does that sound like reasonable grounds for an appeal?
