Lump sum back payment

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 09/26/2011 - 13:04

I received two lump sum payments, but I have not spent all of the funds. I want to make a funeral arrangement and buy a car. How soon must I spend the lump sum payment.

I don't know why I don't see the question I posted yesterday so I'll post it again. My husband had his hearing on 5/26/17 and everything went really well. The lawyer felt that it was a done deal but we still haven't heard anything one way or the other. When should we expect to hear from anyone?

Hi Rose,
I really could not say as every case is different and as such it can take varying amounts of time to receive a decision. Hang in there!

My baby cousin received a first time lump sum payment of $2199 on December 2016. The Social Security Rep told her payee she would need to provide proof/receipts of that money used for that child for that month only. Really? Also the money could only be used for disability purposes for the child only excluding food and clothes. Really? I am confused about the disability items...Please help

HI Tonya,
Your cousin's payee may need to save receipts for anything that they buy with the money, and they may be able to buy food and clothing for the child with it. They may want to contact their local SSA office if they are in doubt about whether a purchase is allowed.

Hi There,

I am so sorry to hear that. I would recommend speaking to a disability rights advocate or attorney regarding your matter.

Hi K,

I am sorry to hear that, one can apply for expedited payments. I would recommend calling the SSA to see if you would qualify. 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Lucy,
If you're receiving SSDI benefits, they should be sent to you about four months after you start monthly benefits.
