If you are serving as a Representative Payee for the child's Social Security benefits then many oversight rules do apply to how you manage those funds. I suggest you contact your local Legal Aid Services organization for assistance with these matters.
Here's some more info on Rep Payee duties:
A payee acts on behalf of the beneficiary. A payee is responsible for everything related to benefits that a capable beneficiary would do for himself or herself. SSA encourages payees to go beyond just managing finances and to be actively involved in the beneficiary’s life. The following lists the required duties of a payee.
Determine the beneficiary’s needs and use his or her payments to meet those needs;
Save any money left after meeting the beneficiary’s current needs in an interest bearing account or savings bonds for the beneficiary's future needs;
Report any changes or events which could affect the beneficiary’s eligibility for benefits or payment amount;
Keep records of all payments received and how they are spent and/or saved;
Provide benefit information to social service agencies or medical facilities that serve the beneficiary;
Help the beneficiary get medical treatment when necessary;
Notify SSA of any changes in your (the payee's) circumstances that would affect your performance or continuing as payee;
Complete written reports accounting for the use of funds; and
Return any payments to which the beneficiary is not entitled to SSA.
I was collecting benefits from obligators Social Seciuity benefits until August 2015, I have was informed by CSEA that the balance of arrearages was below $400, and therefore could no longer collect from his Social Security benefits. I have si...
It depends. You may need to consult with a family law attorney well-versed in child support collection matters to assist you in pursuit of these benefits. You should act quickly as you may be up against an appeal deadline. You also could try contacting CSEA with the new information, and perhaps they will re-activate their collection efforts. Good luck!See question

My esteemed colleague, Mr. Yako, has given you excellent information. In addition, as many attorney do not take on overpayment cases you could contact your local Legal Aid Services organization or Mr. Jerry Ready at Overpayment Relief - (425) 772-6835 to discuss your situation.See question
I GET 756$ IN SSI AND SSDI 494 IN SSDI AND 262 IN SSI SOCIAL SECURITY PAID INTO MY SSDI FOR ME TO GET SSDI IT IS LOW INCOME AMOUNT JUST LIKE ONLY GETTING SSI CAN SOCIAL SECURITY STILL GARNISH IT IF SOCIAL SECURITY PAID INTO MY SSI FOR ME TO GET SS...
However, the SSDI can be garnished for child support arrearages and ongoing obligations.
The Social Security system limits the garnishment amount to the lesser of the State maximum or the maximum under the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) (15 U.S.C. 1673(b)) and is based on the law of the State where the beneficiary resides. Hereafter, the CCPA limit is referred to as the “Federal” limit. The CCPA limits garnishment to:
50%, if the beneficiary is supporting a spouse and/or child other than the spouse and/or child whose support has been ordered.
60%, if the beneficiary is not supporting another spouse and/or child.
55% or 65% respectively, if the garnishment order or other evidence submitted indicates the original support ordered is 12 or more weeks in arrears.
NOTE: as stated by my esteemed colleagues, SSI (Supplemental Security Income) payments are not subject to garnishment.
In 2010 I was awarded SSI. in February of 2017 I was told I should of got. SSDI as a survivor to my mother being disabled before 22. Are my childern. eligible for ssdi as well. Also at one point the SSDI was lower then then the SSI. They said they...
As noted, there are multiple issues presented. You can appeal overpayment issues and the like - consider contacting the Legal Aid Services organization in your state - I am sure Mass. has a good one. Either they or somebody they refer you to can advise you as to available benefits for your children. Good luck!See question
At the end of June, I lost my full Medicaid coverage and was approved for "Medically Needy." I had been on full Medicaid since I was 18 (2001) when I was approved for disability (SSI) and then a few years ago when my father retired and started dra...
Another possibility is thus: If you have been converted from SSI to Disabled Adult Child / Child Disability Benefits then you would be converted to Medicare coverage rather than Medicaid. This likely would generate a Medicaid close-out letter and at some point a Medicare start up notice. As suggested you should contact your state Health Authority agency to clarify where you stand - though Medicare is administered by CMS / Social Security and not DCF - so you also could call Social Security to clarify which monetary and health insurance benefits you are / will be receiving (1-800-772-1213). So many layers of possible confusion in this process.See question
I have to boys and getting married but guy who am married is not father. I want to know cause am married this guy do my kids lost government help insurance and my one son lost his ssi?
It will depend on the combined family income and resources once you are married or 'holding yourself out to be married'. You will need to contact your state health insurance agency and Social Security, and provide them with the necessary information from your family's finances once you are married. Then they will re-determine eligibility.See question

Hello, what are the solutions when a person's social security number is similar with another strange person's social security? so would you please explain the procedure to change the number? thank you in advance.
Under special circumstances the Social Security Administration will change your social security number. You need to show proof that you have 1) suffered harm from someone misusing your ssn and 2) made all reasonable efforts to otherwise solve the problem - credit report freezes, closing accounts and changing account numbers, etc. If both of these apply, then you should be able to get a new number and card issued to you. Call SSA or visit www.ssa.gov/reach.htm.
The documentation that is most preferred by the Social Security Administration is Police Reports (aka Domestic Incident Reports-DIR), Orders of Protection (both expired and non-expired), Criminal complaints (whether there was any prosecution or conviction).
If you have done all you can to fix the problems resulting from misuse of your Social Security number and someone still is using your number, SSA may assign you a new number.
You cannot get a new Social Security number:
To avoid the consequences of filing for bankruptcy;
If you intend to avoid the law or your legal responsibility; or
If your Social Security card is lost or stolen, but there is no evidence that someone is using your number.
If you decide to apply for a new number, you will need to prove your age, U.S. citizenship or lawful immigration status and identity. For more information, ask for Your Social Security Number And Card (Publication Number 05-10002). You also will need to provide evidence that you still are being disadvantaged by the misuse.
Keep in mind that a new number probably will not solve all your problems. This is because other governmental agencies (such as the Internal Revenue Service and state motor vehicle agencies) and private businesses (such as banks and credit reporting companies) likely will have records under your old number. Also, because credit reporting companies use the number, along with other personal information, to identify your credit record, using a new number will not guarantee you a fresh start. This is especially true if your other personal information, such as your name and address, remains the same.
If you receive a new Social Security number, you will not be able use the old number anymore.
For some victims of identity theft, a new number actually creates new problems. If the old credit information is not associated with the new number, the absence of any credit history under the new number may make it more difficult for you to get credit.
