Why Did I Get A $45 Deposit From SSA Today?

Why did I get $45.00 deposit from SSA today 10/14/2021

Hi. I have no way of knowing why you received a deposit. Sometimes people will receive extra or irregular Social Security benefit payments as a result of benefit recomputations. The most common cause of a recomputation is to include additional earnings that the person had after starting to draw benefits, but I don't know if that's what caused your deposit.

Hi. There's no way to get that information other than by contacting Social Security. Currently your only option is to call Social Security, and the best number to use is 800-772-1213.

How Do I Find Out If I'm Due Back Pay From Social Security?

I keep getting conflicting opinions about my remaining ssdi backpay. Ive gad 5 ss reps tell me i was owed 12005 still.2 reps said im paid in full.how do i find out the truth?

Hi. I'm assuming that you've recently been awarded disability benefits. If you had an attorney handling your claim and/or appeal then the attorney should be able to find out and tell you if you have any back pay coming. Otherwise, it's chancy getting reliable information from Social Security representatives. Some are well trained, and others not so much.
