My Daughters father has a pending SSDI case that has been ongoing for the past 2 years. He recently had a hearing and is awaiting a verdict. He currently is in arreages of $27,000. When he won his workmans comp case. The paperwork came to the New York State Insurance Fund after the check was already cashed. He had already spent the funds when he recieved a notice to send the money to illinois child support. So we received nothing from that lump sum payment.
I want to avoid that situation in the future if he does receive SSDI. After some internet research. I see that SSDI, not SSI can be garnished for back child support.
What can I do to ensure that the money owed to my daughter will be issued to her.
