Hi Brittany,

Hi Brittany,

I can't say for sure. You may be able to get expedited payments from the SSA. I would recommend speaking to a representative from there just to be sure.

Best,

Hi i live in Illinois. My son

Hi i live in Illinois. My son receives SSI benefits he is 5yr. He is receiving back pay. I was told the back pay has to be spent on medical or educational. Or things that benefits him. I called the SSI 1800 and asked if i could use some of the money for a new bed for my son and my car needed new breaks and I asked if i could use some of the money to fix my car they said yes because I benefited my son.. Well today and had to go to my local SSI office and they asked me if ive used the back pay i said yes. Had to fix it breaks on my car and a bed for my son, i told the lady that I called the SSI 1800 number to make sure it was okay to use the back pay and that they said yes it shouldn't be a problem. Well the lady today told me no and I have to put the money back that I used. I don't know what todo is there anyone to could call to sort this. And what will happen if i dont pay back the money.

Hi Gabriela,

Hi Gabriela,
I'm sorry to hear about that! Unfortunately, you may be required to repay the SSA regarding that use of funds.

My daughter, Sara Lindstrom

My daughter, Sara Lindstrom has mental illness and she needs the remaining balance of the back pay monies. It's for hardship, many things late for payment. What does she need to do

Hi Linda,

Hi Linda,
You may want to contact the SSA regarding this hardship with some documentation of it ( for example, an eviction notice, past due bills, ect).

Hi Michael,

Hi Michael,
If your child's mother was the representative payee for his account, she may be liable for any money owed to the SSA.

Me and her mother set up a SSI claim for her were she started reciveing $30.00 payments per month while she was hospitalized. She was discharged 3 months later.We continued receiving her $30.00 payment from June 2014 January 2016 so far we gotten 2 lump sum payments of $2,000 every 6 months.

I emailed our local

I emailed our local congressman yet I also went to my local office with documentation of my health taken a turn for the worse and also being kicked out. Because I became sicker. Lol. I wanted the money to buy a small camper to set up at a local park one payment pays all bills and the one I found the man was willing to hold 2 days and I had only seen pictures. My Congress secretary submitted an inquiry and a case worker gave me paperwork to fill out to turn back in that day. It was a wed they close at noon and when I made it back the guard was holding door for people to exit and would not let me turn it in. I was so upset I called my worker left message and he returned my call before I made it home. He is aware of everything and u became very sick and they still don't no what's wrong. He advised me to be careful and said I was approved but be very careful. Go look and make sure it's what it's suppose to be and see if he will hold it a few more days. He said there was no way it could be processed by Friday and it would definitely be following week. Have him write a description amount and contact num and bring it back next day. Well it was a dump. But I found one where I'm from of people I new off and got everything together and dropped off. I'm waiting on tests ect to find out what's going on and want my own place to recipe and live that I can easily move if need be. I'm praying it will be deposited Monday but it was wed when I was approved and I pray into the system the next day. This turn for the worse and trusting has really taken a toll on me. Do you think it can be in as soon as Monday?

Hello everyone,

Hello everyone,

Well I've been going through the decision making process with my 10 years old son since September of 2012. We finally made it to go in front of a law judge in June 2017. I was told that I brought in enough information so my son will be entitled to his pack pay. I was wondering how long do it take to get the approval letter. When I called they said it is still processing. Also, his diagnosis changed over the years but, I made sit to turn in all information. He has autism and other things.

Hi Crystal,

Hi Crystal,

Congrats on the approval! Unfortunately there really is no timetable, but just continue to regularly check in with your status online.

Best Wishes,
Eric

I am still waiting to see the

I am still waiting to see the ODAR judge in ky. I have applied for both SSDI/SSI. My attorney says I have a great case just have to see the judge. what I would like to know when I am approved and I receive my back pay for the 17 months, I was told I can get my SSI back pay all the same time and the SSDI over time is this true?

Hi Brian,

Hi Brian,
SSI back pay comes in installments, and SSDI back pay is paid out in a lump sum.

D.R.
I received a lump sum payment

I received a lump sum payment from my 401k which brings me over the allotted 999.99 I can have in my bank account. Can I do a voluntary payment to SSDI in order to remain on disability? I really do not want to have to be taken off disability and then re-apply.

Hi D.R.,

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

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

Hi CK,

Hi CK,
Yes, as those emergency funds are paid out of your back pay.

CK
Will getting emergency funds

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

Hi CK,

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.

CK
What I Meant was because I

What I Meant was because I got emergency funds in July will I still get my last lump sum payment in September?

Hi there,

Hi there,
Payment of emergency funds may not change your lump sum payment dates.

dani

Hi Dani,

Hi Dani,
The SSA may provide back pay for that, if you are set to receive back pay they would include the back pay for those months in there.

dani

My son received a very large

My son received a very large back payment from social security. He is also on SIS and has Medicaid for his secondary insurance. Can we spend that lump sum payment so to not lose his SIS and Medicaid, or do we have to lose SIS and Medicaid and reapply when the money runs out?

Hi Terri,

Hi Terri,
You would either need to spend it or you may be able to put it in a special needs trust. It may be a good idea to contact your local SSA office regarding this.

I applied for SSI in 2015 I finely got approved how much will I get in back pay?

Hello,

Hello,

As of 2016, monthly SSI payments were $733/mo + any state supplements. You should receive a lump sum for all the months you've missed. This lump sum should come in three separate installments. Hope this helps!

I just received a letter

I just received a letter stating they were with holding $ 18,000 for SSI back pay to pay lawyer and Human Re. I am thinking that is food stamps. Do you have to pay back all food stamps

Hi Amy,

Hi Amy,
That may depend on your state's rules regarding food stamps.

Hi, my son has spina bifida,

Hi, my son has spina bifida, he is 4 years old and was just approved this month. We applied when he was 6 months old. We haven't had our last appointment yet, due to phone tag with the office. Today my car broke down and im a single mother. I have no way to get to work or any of his doctors appointments. Will he receive back pay and is there anyway we can rush the process due to the dire need for transportation?

Hi Deana,

Hi Deana,
You can, you may want to contact your local SSA office about this with documentation of your need ( like a repair estimate or bill).

sue
if a persone is receiving

if a persone is receiving federal disability payments and social security disability payments and then receives a shedule award for their work injury can they keep the money received in the schedule award.. or will social security want that...

Hi Sue,

Hi Sue,
If they're receiving SSI benefits, they may become ineligible for benefits if they go over SSI's limits on income or financial assets.
