This March begins on a bit of a mixed note for me. On the plus side, as I’ve been hinting at this past week, things have been going much better financially lately. I’m in line for a sizable tax refund of over $5000 this year. I’ve also received a very positive ruling in my recent disability court case, providing for both monthly disability payments and back payment on the disability payments that could have been made starting in 2012, which should yield somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000 when all is said and done.
On the minus side, ‘when all is said and done’ is not today. The Social Security Administration has sixty days to pay the disability benefits, so it could be mid-April before I see those funds. As for the tax refund…given that I finished the paperwork on Sunday, it’s not too surprising that I haven’t received my refund yet (even before you factor in the typical speed of the IRS…).
