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 Lynn,
I'm not sure if you would get back pay as those details would be handled by the SSA and we are not affiliated with them. I would contact them for more information about your specific case regarding back pay. You can contact them at 1-800-772-1213

Hi Inwas recently awarded benefits. I need to show proof that I paid my landlord a lump sum of $$ for back pay rent and future rent payments from my settlement. Does ssa call your landlord? All ssi wants is a letter from landlord saying I paid him a lumps in for rent.

I would not rely on the SSA to call your landlord. Make sure that you have documents that say you had paid your back rent to your landlord with the lump sum, and then submit that document to the SSA.

If you're talking about lump sums for five years of back pay, it would depend on if you are getting SSI or SSDI payments, and how much you have been awarded monthly.

Hi Sean,
I would contact the SSA about this, their number is 1-800-772-1213, they would be able to determine if they can give you an advance on your SSI benefits.

Hi Shelby,
Back pay is sometimes paid in installments, I think this is what is happening in your case. Generally back pay is paid every six months in three installments.

My son started receiving survivors benefits from his father's death as of January 2016 but his father passed in November of 2013 my question is will he receive back pay from the 2 yrs he had been deceased and if so when?

Hi Samantha,
I'm sorry for your loss!
Survivor's benefits are paid from the time you applied, and not when the person had passed. I would not be able to say if your son is eligible for back pay because we are not affiliated with the SSA and would not know when you had applied on behalf of your son.

Hi Jaime,
You absolutely can! It's not guaranteed that you would be awarded benefits, however.

Hi Marlena,
It sounds like your third installment is due for April, it would not stop your back pay but it would affect your benefits going forward.
