    I agree. The IRS considers the award of back Social Security payments a windfall which will not be considered part of your base maintenance income and thus subject to attachment to satisfy back taxes.

    They MAY take it all; a phone call to the IRS will get you an answer.

    If you show a real NEED for the income, you may get some of it.
