The simple answer to the question: yes. You can get back pay depending on when Social Security finds you to be disabled. After being found disabled, Social Security will determine the date you were disabled and whether you qualify for backpay. To receive backpay, you must be found to be disabled for at least five months. If you were disabled for five months before being approved, you have possibility to receive backpay.
