  • Backpay Question

    I have been receiving SSI payments for about two years. My backpay was around 12K, and the nine month mark is this February, when I am supposed to have spent all of the backpay or else it will count as my resources.

    However, I simply have not been able to spend it all. I live a very minimalist lifestyle and I'm not the kind of person to go out and spend a bunch of money just to spend it. I have about 6K left in my bank account.

    If I don't get rid of 4K, I will be over the 2K resource limit in February.

    What should I do? What do others do in this situation? If I don't spend it and my benefits stop, can they resume once I do eventually spend it?
    Diagnosed with IC in 2005, since then have been diagnosed with an unspecified autoimmune disease, with inflammation in my bladder, colon, left knee, left ear, left eye, lungs and pericardium. Argh!
