If Social Security miscalculated your benefits and paid you a lesser amount for several years, do you receive a back payment for the money lost?

En español | Social Security will compensate you for the time you were underpaid.  This compensation may be included in a number of monthly benefits until it is paid in full, or you may receive a one-time lump sum payment. Each situation is unique. Therefore, you will need to contact the Social Security Administration directly.
