Can I get benefits for my grandkids since I'm disabled now? We have guardianship for a 13 & 11 year old for the past 6 years and had them for 8 years total. My daughter gets disability benefits for being bipolar and the kids get $121 each a month. Since they're our dependents and I just was just granted disability and my husband is 70 and wants to retire. Can they draw off of us now? The father never pays child support and is currently in prison. I hope you can help, thank you!
