Child Benefits

Can My Son Receive His Current Benefits And Also Receive Mental Health Disability Benefits?

Category: 

My current husband is 88 years old and receives SS benefits of $2100 per month.

Three years ago we legally adopted my biological grandson, Jonny who is now 13 years old. Jonny currently receives about $1000 a month on my current husband’s social security record.

I also have an adult disabled son, Adam, who receives $1800 a month on my first husband’s record. I am the representative payee for both children.

Hi,

Why Does My Son Only Get $8 A Month On His Dad's Social Security Disability?

Category: 

I was wondering my son who is almost 4 gets $8 a month in his dads social security disability. The ssa said that was the "family maximum" My sons dad lives with his mom who owns her own home... and I may add that he is not a us citizen either....why is it that my child gets only $8 a month? Do you think the disabled adult's mother gets a portion to "care" for her son?? and why does this not go straight to my son who has the disabled parent to help with cost etc? He pays $150 in child support a month but I feel like we should be getting more help. I am a single mother..

How Many Months Can My Child Receive Benefits?

Category: 

I turned 66 in Dec. 2017, I have an 18 year old child graduating high school in June 2018. I have not yet enrolled to take any benefits. I would like to retroactively take my benefits and child benefits and then suspend, letting my benefit compound until I am 70. Considering my child graduates in June, when and how should I file and for how many months will we be paid. Thanks

Hi,

How Much Should We Be Receiving?

Category: 

My ex wife and I both receive SSDI benefits.
We have one dependent child under the age of 18.
Should we be receiving SSDI benefits based on both my and my ex wife's combined benefit amount.

Hi,

You and your ex-wife can each draw the SSDI rate that you are due based on your own earnings, and the most that your child could be paid is 50% of the higher of a) your full SSDI rate, or b) your ex-wife's full SSDI rate.

Best, Jerry

How Can A Child Receive A Higher SSDI Rate Than I Do?

Category: 

Hi. I am 64 with multiple sclerosis and recieiving SSDI mof $1,041 this current year. I just watched a TV court show involving a 21 year old woman who had been (her mother as guardian) receiving SSDI since the girll was age 5. The monthly sum was $1700. What? How does this happen when I worked over 30 years and get no more than the $1041? I don't believe there is anything I can do about my monthly amount but it sure gives me leaven for complaint.
