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.

I received 2 of my installments for my back pay and they still owe me 7000 more I bought a car on my.last installment but I have notes she insurance and the lil money they give me in my checks I can't pay it so I'm wondering if they will give me some of the back pay they owe me to catch up so i can get ahead of myself??? I have to go back and forth to the Drs so i need a car cause I go to the Drs often I still owe a lot but just wanna see if they can give me the back pay to pay up for a year on the car

Hi Alisha,
They may decide to issue an OTR decision, but if you were denied on the OTR decision, you still have the option to appeal.

Hi Rose,
Back pay is usually paid four months after you start receiving monthly benefits.

Hi Rose,
I think the SSA may still have your application in process and needs some extra information from you. It may be a good idea to contact your local SSA office so that the caseworker there can go over where you are in the application process.

My daughter will receive benefits from her father who is disabled. She is expecting a large lump sum, will that be divided? My son is now 18 but he will receive a one time lump sum a little less than my daughters, will his be divided? We requested the Direct Express card, will the lump sum go onto that?

Hi Kristel,
If they are getting benefits through SSDI, then they would get the benefits as one lump sum.

Hi Alisha,
Generally you may want and EOD that matches your Alleged Onset Date that you submitted when you filed, but it never hurts to ask.

Hi Alisha,
Yes, the judge may award you back pay if you were determined unable to work during that time, but it ultimately depends on your established date of onset.

Hi Alisha,
The SSA will pay you retroactive benefits if they have determined that you were entitled to benefits and the past that they did not pay.

Hi Rose,
I really could not say as all cases are different, and as such it may take different lengths of time for cases to be decided.

I was just approved for ssdi when will I receive my first monthly check. And hoe long before I receive my lump sum . I was told by the magistrate himself. It will only go back to Dec 2014 as of my 49th Birthday. I don't quite understand if I will get as or ssdi..I have no idea of how much I will get monthly due to so, much confusion . My attorney said I got as but I was told they will go back just shy of 2 Years and will receive a lump sum and after reading on here . I am now confused about the lump sum because someone stated if it's ssi then you don't get a lump sum ...oh boy

Hi Chrissy,
If you receive SSI you would get your back pay as three installments rather than one lump sum, and if you were receiving SSDI then you would receive your back pay as one lump sum .

Hi Bryan my hearing was a dire need . I was being evicted from my home . My daughter works part time and my five year old granddaughter here as well we have no vehicle . I contact the social services transportation sometimes they are unable to meet the dates that I have to go to doctors appointments and I have to reschedule. If I'm approved can i ask my local social security for money off my back pay? My claim was ssi/ssd and if so what do I do?

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

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.

Why is it that disability only go back two years for back pay when you been working since you were seventeen? Thanks

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.
