I just discovered this site and am amazed at all the work you do in helping others -- so I want to thank you.
I also have a question. I married a Mexican citizen who I met in Mexico. We have been married almost two years and lived together before that time. We have 4 dependent children.
I am a retired police officer on SSDI. I am legal guardian of my 10 yr old grandson.
My wife works as a nurse.
My chldren collected a small benefit on my SSDI until they passed the age requirement and were dropped.
Can my grandson get the same monthly benefit as my kids did, and/or is there a benefit I can receive as his guardian/provider?
I am 67. My wife is 23. We have been married for five years. We are going to use donor sperm threw the houspital to get her , pregnant. I get $1150.00 from Social Security each month .willlll i get a check each month for the child and if so. How much will it be
My cousin is 39 years old and has a daughter who just turned 14. My cousin has been receiving permanent SSDI payments ($667/mo) plus SSI payments ($31.02/mo). Her daughter has been receiving SSDI payments ($55/mo) based on her mother's benefits. The daughter's father, who has never been married to her mother, is currently applying for SS retirement at age 63. His minor daughter is eligible for SS benefits based on his retirement benefit.
My son recieves survivors benefits fro ssi. Why do they include this as my income for eligibility for me to put my daughter in day care. I have to prove every year that the money is spent on my sons needs not my daughters Daycare
Well, your son's Social Security survivor benefits are his income, not yours or your daughter's. I don't know what kind of program you are referring to with regard to your daughter's daycare, but if they count your son's income, I assume it's counted as a part of your family income. That's just a guess, though.
I am 64 and receiving SS retirement. My husband is 55. We have recently been awarded legal guardianship of our 4 year old granddaughter. I have received conflicting information. Some information states that with legal guardianship, we can receive SS benefits for our granddaughter, and other information states she must be adopted or have disabled parents. Which is correct? I am currently using your software, which gives benefits to the child and my spouse. Thank you.

I am 67 have filed and suspended my benifits, my husband turns 66 March 26th he will collect on my benefits as they are higher. Does he apply now or wait till February
Also I have adopted my grand daughter can I get benefits for her now even though have suspended benefits.
I am the only adoptive parent
Social Security applications can be filed up to 4 months in advance, so your husband could apply any time now.
Can a child receive their deceased parent's Social Security if they are also receiving food stamps and Calworks?
Food stamps and other types of public assistance have no effect on a person's entitlement to Social Security benefits, nor the rate of the benefits payable. However, receipt of Social Security benefits could effect the person's eligibility for food stamps and other public assistance payments.
