    Answered . If he receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) the answer is definitely "no." However, if the father has ever been a wageearner, he may actually be receiving SSDI (Social Security disability) and if his work record was strong enough, there may be benefits for his dependents, which is a single monthly sum divided equally between all dependents.
