DISABILITY INCOME I AM NOT sure from whom you get a disability check, but I have worked with disabled people for some years now, so I'll take a shot at trying to answer your question. Generally, your disability check would be for YOUR disability. I don't imagine your daughter (adopted granddaughter) receiving any of your disability check. The only things I see happening are: your granddaughter is disabled and receives a check. OR, since you are taking custody/guardianship of a minor, maybe you would get an increase in YOUR check, because you would now have a dependent. Whatever happens, her last name should not matter, as long as she lives with you, you are her legal guardian and she is your legal dependent. There is also a possibility of you receiving a stipend (sum of money) for adopting the child. You don't say where you get your disability checks from: a former employer, the state in which you live, or the federal government. You should probably pose the question you are asking to whom ever sends you your checks. I hope I have helped out! <<<ADR>>>
