Back pay in dedicated account

I don't understand why we can't use the back pay for anything my son needs. Also what happens to the money when he turns 18 do they take it back? If they do now I get why they make it hard for us to spend it. They want the money back . I need help on ideas what u can use it for my son has ADHD AND AUTUSM any ideas what I can use the money for would greatly be appreciated

You should call them and ask these questions Social Security office. They know better than we do what the money in the dedicated account is for. I know my friend's son had Social Security disability most of his life. There was a dedicated account and she had to ask them permission to use it for things he needed like dressings for areas of his arm after surgery because she could not afford it otherwise, for gas to take him to Children's Hospital four hours away and other things. She also put it back into the account. But do not take what she did as the right thing to the office and ask them.
