For SSI, you get benefits from the later of two dates: the date of application or the date of disability. The date of disability for your daughter would be her date of birth, if you can prove she was disabled then. The date of diagnosis is irrelevant. There is a different rule for Social Security Disability, which would not apply to your daughter's case. Take care.

You get Medicare two years after the month in which the Administration admits you should have gotten your first check. Once you have been approved, here is how to figure that month:

When you get approved, you will get 3 things in the mail. A large check, your first monthly check, and a notice explaining how much money you are supposed to get. That notice will list the months that you should have gotten checks for. Find the earliest month listed. Add two years. That will be the date Medicare starts.

That depends on when they say you became disabled. If they say you became disabled yesterday, you will get no back pay. If they say you became disabled on 6/2002, and you applied that same day, you will draw from that date for SSI, and from 6 months after that date for DIB.

You can generally draw from the date you apply, or the the Administration says you became disabled, whichever is later, for SSI.

You can generally draw from a year before the date you apply, or 6 months after the day you become disabled, for DIB.

Sorry its so complicated.
