hi Shelbyy,

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.

Samantha
My son started receiving

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,

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,

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

HI just started working and its been a few years and I have have received my 2nd installment will, i get my 3rd? from my docuements I recieve it every 6 months. It came in Nov. last year as planned but does that stop once I start working again?

Hi Marlena,

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.

Hi Meme,

Hi Meme,
Yes, I would expect your next installment to arrive around May 9th!

My car motor went out in my

My car motor went out in my car, that is my only way back and forward to all of my appointments and I have backpay from SSI can I recieve my second payments early?

Hi Roshell,

Hi Roshell,
It's unlikely. SSI back payments are usually only expedited for an extreme medical emergency, such as surgery or life-saving treatments.

I receive ssi, my back

I receive ssi, my back payment will be a lot of money and they have to give it to me in 3 installments 6 months apart. My question is how long do i have to spend my last installment been that it will be more then the first 2 installment

Hi Carol,

Hi Carol,
You will need to spend your first installment before you receive your second installment, so around six months.

need lump sum against mY $20

need lump sum against mY $20,000. the most .I can get buying car for my mother.

Hi Timothy,

Hi Timothy,
I am not sure what you are asking here. If you are getting a lump sum payment, you can indeed always use it for purchasing a new car so long as you don't have two cars on SSI benefits.

bresha brown
My son is due for another

My son is due for another installment payment which is due every six months. They said they released the payment into my account today which is Thursday but its not showing up in my account. How long does ssi installment payments take to post in your account?

Hi Bresha,

Hi Bresha,
I would give it around 24 hours before contacting the SSA to see where the payment is.

If i received my Back paying.

If i received my Back paying. November 9 2015 when will i see second on

Hi Meme,

Hi Meme,
Back pay is usually done with installments six months apart. If you haven't gotten your back pay some time in the coming month, I would contact the SSA to find out if there are any problems with your back pay.

Hi Nikki,

Hi Nikki,
We're not affiliated with the SSA so we would not be able to say why it is late. I would contact them at 1-800-772-1213, they would be better able to help you with this.

Hi Peter,

Hi Peter,
I'm not sure if they would be able to give you your last lump sum early, but if you call 1-800-772-1213 the SSA may be able to help you further with that.

I am a rep payee for someone

I am a rep payee for someone who just received $40k in retroactive back pay due her
What do I do with the money and how long to spend it.Can I put it in a separate bank account?She already has one savings account that she receives her monthly ssi payment direct deposited into.2k is the most she can have in an account.I guess I can always call Social Security.I am new at this.

Hi Lynda,

Hi Lynda,
If you are a representative payee for someone getting SSI, you have nine months to spend the lump sum money, after that it gets counted as a resource. Generally people spend that money for housing, transportation,paying off any debts, ect. I would definitely contact the SSA, they would be able to give you guidance as to what you can do with that back payment.

Samuel
If you have to recertify

If you have to recertify first benefits can you receive any more back pay

Hi Samuel,

Hi Samuel,
I am not sure what you are asking here. Back pay is only given out when you have to wait for more than 5 months to be approved for SSDI payments.

Hi Trevon,

Hi Trevon,
Back pay installments are usually paid six months apart. If it does not come in that time, I would contact the SSA for some more information.

I won my ssa disability case

I won my ssa disability case in Sept. 2015, but long story short I just received a lump sum over $10,000.00 do I have to spend this within a certain amount of time?

Hi Dave,

Hi Dave,
If you are getting SSI benefits you may have to spend it within nine months, or it would be counted against your financial resource limits.

Nicole
My son was approved for back

My son was approved for back pay ssi he has received two of his back pay lump sum and waiting on his last lump. So how soon will he receive the final lump sum if he got it in October 2015?

Hi Nicole,

Hi Nicole,
The SSA generally pays lump sums six months apart, so if it has not shown up six months from the last lump sum payment, I would contact the SSA for some more information. You can call them at 1-800-772-1213.

WHAT IF I LOOSE MY SSI

WHAT IF I LOOSE MY SSI BENEFITS BECAUSE OF 1 ACRE OF LAND?

Hi there,

Hi there,
You would lose that SSI payment because the acre of land would put you over the resource limits for SSI.

if you have a circumstance that leads you to need your back pay earlier than the usual payment schedule, I would contact your local SSA office regarding this, you can find a listing of local offices here:
