  1. Hello Mr Jones,
    After 23 years with the USPS I was awarded a fers disability pension and received backpay for interim period time while waiting for this process to be adjudicated.
    My question to you is, when I apply for ssi benefit will the backpay I received be listed as income?
    Thank you,
