My kids finally qualified for Survivor Benefits and are getting some back pay. In the paper work it says to keep track of how the money is spent, no problem its all going towards them. Does that also include the back pay? Or is it like CS and the back pay can be used how I want. They are getting over 2,000 a piece in back pay (2 kids) and I am thinking of getting a car so that I don't have to borrow from everyone just to get to and from work. And today with my DD getting sick at school and I had to get someone to come in for me at work cause I had my mom's car and their was no one else to get her I lost a few hours at work because of that, I know this things happen. I need a car, would I be able to use the back pay to help get one??????
