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 receive expedited back pay if you can provide the SSA some documentation about your need ( like an eviction notice, overdue bills, ect). You may want to contact a local SSA office regarding this.

Hi there,
If you're waiting for your back pay you'll unfortunately need to wait till your 6 month waiting period is up--the only exceptions are for medical emergencies.

Hello, I'm new to this.
I'm going to be the representative payee for my mom. She is going to receive a lump sum payment of $30,000 -- some of it is SSI and some SSDI.

I was not expecting to be the rep payee and thought she would have full control of her money. My worry is she owes me a lot of money for various expenses I have paid on her behalf for 3 years while she was waiting for a decision for approval. She was going to pay me back once she got her lump sum but now I have learned that I am in charge of it being the rep payee. Can I pay myself back what she owes me?

Hi Josh,
You should be able to do that if it was agreed upon ahead of time--I'd save some kind of transaction/agreement just in case!

I received a call from local SSI office confirming my status and asking me how I prefer my payment she said she would mail a paper check then apply for SSI visa Card.later. She said I will get $2005 dollars in 3-7 days and I received forms stating what the call was regarding , however I still have a upcoming rescheduled hearing w/Judge and Attorney...will this lump sum come and why before the hearing?

my boyfriend received a lumpsum check and his payee (his bestfriend's mom) used it to buy herself a trailer house about $22,000 he was told she will pay him back but never did. now we're living together and is asking the money back but she wont talk to him now. he doesnt want to report to ssa because he is afraid his "mom" would go to jail for it what can we do?

Hi Dawn,
That's a tough situation! It's unknown if she'd go to jail, but she'd likely be ordered to repay it.

hello, my dad recently passed and my mom applied for his benefits. in the process of this she was told by a friend to check if she could get benefits from her ex husband. she was approved and is currently receiving her ex husbands benefits. Does she qualify for back pay that she could have been getting, as he passed 21 years ago.

Hi Maryann,

I'm sorry to hear that. I do not believe that survivors are entitled to back pay, and she likely wouldn't have been eligible for 20 years of back pay anyway as you're only eligible after age 60.
