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 There,

No, you won't get it all at once. SSI backpay comes in 3 separate of installments about 6 months a part. Your first installment typically comes 4 months after you begin receiving your benefits.

Hi Mary,

That is all situational! For back pay, it varies on when you apply for benefits, how long it takes to be approved and when the SSA considers the date of onset of the disability is. For monthly income, the maximum is dependent on income, needs, cost-of-living, etc.)

Hi Deelian,

Back pay typically comes in installments 6 months apart! So it should be about 6 months after your first payment.
