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,
You may be able to get expedited benefits if you contact the SSA regarding your urgent need for the funds.

Hi Nay Nay,
Lump sums come six months apart, so it should be six months from June of this year.

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear about that! You may want to contact the SHA in your state, they may not have known that your income increased due to disability benefits.

Hi Alisha,
Unfortunately I could not say as we are not affiliated with the SSA and as such cannot give people much insight as to whether they will be awarded benefits.

Hi Addie,
Back pay is only given for the time at which you were entitled to benefits, but were not receiving them. So if you were disabled for a year before applying, or if you had to wait a year to be approved, you would be able to receive back pay. But if you work all your life and are approved in less than 5 months, you will not be entitled to back pay.

Hi there,
if your son is eligible to receive back pay, the SSA may just send the installment to you.

Hi there,
Back pay is generally paid out in installments six months apart for SSI.
