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.

Once I am approved to receive social security off my dad, how long does it take to get your back payments?

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

Hi Annette,

I am sorry to hear that. You should contact the SSA immediately at 1-800-772-1213 to see if they could shed some light on this.

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?

Unfortunately many kinds of income can affect SSI payments, even SSDI back pay. Have you considered receiving 50% of his SSDI benefits if you're over age 50?

I got approved back in October, 1st payment ( monthly payment) was in November.. Got a letter in October saying how much was the back pay was going to be, and it also said they would let me know when I would get my dedication back pay ( letter said within 30 to 60 days)... Well it's been more then 60 days n haven't heard anything nor no deposits have been made...... How long does it take for them to deposit the back pay into ur account after u get approved n have started receiving ur monthly payments ??

Hi Jacklee,

I'm sorry to hear that! Many people here say it takes around four months after payments start so you should be receiving your payment any day now.

I got a lump sum in August and am not sure if that has to be claimed on my taxes this year? And do I pay taxes on the lump sum?? It was for survivor benefits.

Hi David,
You may be liable for taxes on that money, it may be a good idea to contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.
