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.

Hi D.R.,
If you're on SSDI benefits, you would not have a limit to how much you can have in your bank account, and your 401k may be counted as unearned income, which SSDI recipients do not have an eligibility limit for either.

I've received 2 lump sum payments but I got emergency funds in July will that effect my last lump sum payment?

Will getting emergency funds affect when I get my last lump summer installment?

Hi CK,
Yes, because they had paid out emergency funds. You would receive the back pay you were owed minus the emergency funds you were given.

Hi there,
I really couldn't say, but since you've been granted expedited benefits due to your need, it may be soon. Hang in there!

Hi there,
I really could not say as both the SSI and SSDI programs have different rules regarding when benefits would start.
