    Anyone know how you are supposed to use SSI backpay?

    With us it depended on how much back pay-

    14yo was in psychiatric hospital when applied it went right thru so got 2 months of back pay which was spent (utilities, rent, food)

    12yo applied for her same time as 14yo but it was denied and won on appeal so back pay was 18 months worth - that had to be put in a separate bank account and can only be used for things directly pertaining to her disability; I have to get permission from SSA before we can touch it.

    If you have a ? contact SSA and ask them.
