Your date of entitlement is the date in which you will start to receive disability benefits.
If you have a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) case, the date of entitlement would be the first day of the month following the date you applied. For instance, if you filed your SSI claim on February 19, 2010, your date of entitlement would be March 1, 2010.
If you have a Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim, your entitlement date is five full months after the date Social Security deems you disabled. For instance, if you filed your SSDI claim on February 19, 2010, and Social Security determined that you became disabled on January 5, 2009, your date of entitlement would be July 1, 2009. Social Security does not count the partial month in which you applied and will not start your benefits for another five full months. Therefore, the date of entitlement would be July 1, 2009.
