If you get social security benefits for your child that has a disablility do they take it off your income tax?

I heard I can apply for benefits since my child has a disability but I don't think its worth it if there going to take it off my income tax then I won't get anything at the end on the year. Or how does it really work? i'm new to that.

  • Call the Social Security Office. They are much better prepared to answer this question since they work there.

  • They go by your income to determine what you child will get. Thats how they determined my dds. But once my dh made over 2000, they took it away from her.
