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.

If my PERS benefits ran out and I was refunded the account balance will it affect SSI? I am disabled and the refund from PERS I had to use to payback a loan I had with my son.

My son was reviving survivor benefits and stopped when he was in states custody for a year.
He has since returned home and custody has been returned to me.
He just received a payment for September and we are curious if he will receive his payments from when he was in states custody....
We have settled the payment with the recovery service office

Hi Andrew,
He may not have been eligible as SSI benefits for children are dependent on household income.

Hi Nia,

I am sorry to hear that. If it doesn't come on Monday, I would call the SSA first thing Tuesday morning.

My sons father receives Ssdi and was claiming him as a dependent. The SSA found that he owes that $ to my son (beneficiary) since I am his sole care giver and the funds should have stayed with him, not his father. Will my son ever receive those benefits? It’s close to 9k

The letter from SSA said they would be collecting it from the father...once they do, do they pay the child back? I’ve tried to call SSA and am on hold for hours!

Hi There,

I really can't accurately say for sure. I would recommend speaking to a SSA representative. 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Gary,

You may be able to use some of your Social Security benefits to help buy a car, but I would recommend speaking to a SSA representative first just to be safe.

My son was approved for SSI. I received a lump sum, but was still owed 1455. They said that in 6 months i would receive that amount. We are in December, and that payments due. Would i receive that payment on the first, or days after??

Hi Marlen,

If your child is over the age of 21 they will not be able to qualify for auxiliary benefits unless they have a disability

I just received my back pay from SSD, is there any way I can get around giving the back pay to my former employer long term disability department?

HI Nadine,
You may want to consult your employer's policy, you may be obligated to pay them back pay if you had agreed to it in the policy.

Hi Don,
I'm sorry to hear that! You may want to start collecting evidence that the SSA had underpaid you.

Hi Mark,
It may be a good idea to contact your local SSA office regarding this as they would be able to give you information specific to your case regarding this.

SSDI got approved and a one time big lump sum says direct deposited today. I just updated my direct deposit with them today because I don't remember giving them my bank info and I have not received anything yet. Should I be expecting that lump sum any minute now or what?

Hi Nick,
You may want to confirm where they had sent your money with the SSA, and I can't say when you would get it as processing times can vary by banking instituition.

How often do they put some more of the back pay money on your bank card


In reply to by TiffanyT (not verified)

Hi Tiffany,
If you're receiving SSI benefits, then they would pay back pay in
three installments six months apart.

I receive SSI and SSDI. My husband recently started receiving SSDI and was given a lump sum back payment and they stopped my SSI. I thought it didnt count against my SSI for 9 months, then after 9 months what was left counted as income or resources. Does anyone know how that works?
