How does SSI benefits effect child support?
SSI recipients are not liable for current, ongoing child support and child support, current or past-due, cannot be withheld from SSI payments. [SSI recipients are, of course, …liable for any past due child support.]
I'm not sure.
If they are still classified as disable.
The child may be eligible for TANF (formerly AFDC) and Medicaid. The two of you may be eligible for SNAP (formerly food stamps).
If a child was receiving SSI payments prior to being approved for medicaid disability how will that effect his SSI benefits?
There will be no effect.
I think you mean "adopted child" and the answer is, yes.
You don't - SSI recipients are exempt from paying support. (However, they owe support that had been ordered to be paid, if any).
NO, child support does not reduce SSI benefits, it has not effect.
SSI does not count as income for child support purposes and child support cannot be garnished from SSI payments.
I am getting child support from my non custodial parent can he deduct my ssi benefit from the support amount that he has to give me?
No he can not.
SSI are benefits to help to pay with the extra he needs due to his condition. It is not to support the child which is the parents job.
