  • I don't.... but from what I've learned about my state is that you get a check from SS every week for the children in question... your home has to meet their criteria though.

  • I watched a womans son through the ss system. Your babysitter needs to pass all background checks and you only get so much for so much time, after that you are on your own. Depnding on your state you can get the money sent straight to you or straight to the provider.
