If I pay childsuport and I wasn't riposte to and it get drop do they have to pay me back

Hi,

Social Security would only reduce a person's benefit to pay child support if they are ordered by a court to do so. If your benefits were garnished due to a valid court order, then you would have to work through the court in order to get that money back.
