I agree with my colleague's assessment, and unfortunately earnings in excess of the limits will preclude a person from the program. With that said, the number of folks in the household will change the limit. Here is the income information for Georgia.
Mr. Quinn is correct. Information provided by treating physicians is evaluated differently than information provided by physicians that evaluate you on a single basis. Though nine years is a considerable amount of time, you definitely want to avoid the possibility that an opinion provided by a paid SSA witness gets additional credibility as a result of your prior relationship. The reason for this is simple; SSA medical and psychological evaluations frequently slant heavily against the claimant.
I am writing this answer from Georgia, but I suspect that the broad strokes are essentially the same. Please take this under advisement as you read.
I have not yet experienced a situation where the receipt of unemployment benefits caused a case to be decided negatively. On several occasions, judges have pointed out to my clients the idea that the assertions made by a claimant under the two programs are at odds with one another, and I prepare them for this speech before the hearing. I know...
Report any alleged misuse of your son's Social Security funds to the SSA immediately. If your son is capable, it would be wise to have him contact the SSA with information as well. It is within their power to switch representative payees without litigation, though they will want to ensure that this request is not motivated by other reasons.

A person can receive benefits as a divorced spouse on a former spouse’s Social Security record if he or she:
Was married to the former spouse for at least 10 years;
Is at least age 62 years old;
Is unmarried; and
Is not entitled to a higher Social Security benefit on his or her own record.
In addition, the former spouse must be entitled to receive his or her own retirement or...
If I understand the question correctly, you are asking if VA Disability and Unemployment are utilized when determining a child support payment. In most states, the answer will be yes. If you are recently unemployed and are suffering from reduced income, you will want to petition the court for a modification order, which may reduce your monthly payment. Also, in the interest of your child's well-being, you will want to ensure that their insurance premiums continue to be covered until...
I agree with Mr. Vance's answer. Disclosure must occur, and then in the State of Georgia, if earnings from work are lower than the unemployment benefit, your friend should receive the difference. Once Social Security Retirement begins, this may reduce unemployment further.

Good luck to you!
Without additional facts, it is difficult to give an exact answer, but it would appear that for you to continue to receive benefits without an interruption, you will need to return before being gone for six months. I have attached a Social Security Publication on the subject below.
Re-applying for SSI is as simple as contacting your local Social Security office. (https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp) Good luck to you.
The child SSI recipient is presumed to receive some of the parents Income and Child Support money, a process known as "Deeming". Certain conditions may give rise to a Deeming Waiver (also known in Georgia as a Katie Beckett Waiver), but the rules of Deeming are too complex to all be written here. I am attaching a link to the Social Security POMS ( Program Operations Manual System) Manual excerpts about Child Support Payments in the hopes that it will be of use. Good luck to you, and if you...
I agree with my colleague's answer. Child support will generally be regarded as unearned income (http://www.socialsecurity.gov/ssi/text-income-ussi.htm), but there are a couple of items of which you should take note. What age does child support cease? Age 18 is commonly used, and if this is the case he may be able to simply receive SSI payments without event. If child support continues, you will want to discuss trust options as my colleague noted, in particular a Special Needs Trust (though...
