If your SSA-1099 is showing a 2017 payment along with your 2018 benefits, then the 2017 payment is considered a lump sum payment.  You enter it into your return and TurboTax will calculate whether any of it is taxable or not. 

Take a look at the TurboTax article below for more information and guidance to enter this into your return.
