Dh has full legal custody of sd. Bm shares physical disability. Bm does not pay child support. She informed dh tgat agree is filing for partial disability. She said that she told them she has a child but doesn't have any dependents. Sd also has a disability and recieves ssi. I'm wondering if Sd is in titled to more money if bm doesget approved for ddisability. My husband says not to worry about it but I think we should at least ask the social security office how the best way to handle this is. Any ideas on what this might mean? Can bm get a check for sd so what happens if she doesn't give us the check? Could her getting a check mess sds ssi up?

For herself. Sd already gets ssi. Sd is autistic. Bm didn't know sd got ssi until early last yr. Ssi had nothing to do with bm but now I'm wondering if bm gets disability if that will hurt or help SDs benefits.

All you can do is contact SSI?!

It won't hurt SD's SSI.

As for SD falling under a different category on top of the one she has now, due to BM getting SSI, all depends on different things. The only way to find out is contacting SSI.

If she qualifies for a benefit under mom's claim it will reduce her ssi amount.. but that money should go to who ever is already the payee for the child. That is just my personal experience with my Dds said. Call to double check though especially if you are payee not mom.

It depends on whether BM got SSI or SSDI.  If she got SSDI, then your SD should qualify for a dependent payment of some amount.  If she gets a dependent payment from SSDI though, it probably will impact her SSI amount.  I'm not sure if it's a 1 to 1 reduction or some other amount though.  

You'll have to call the SS office to find out.
