No. However, it might be possible for the custodial parent to sue for financial damages incurred because of the non compliance of the obligated parent, depending upon whether or not the state in which the order was issued has a statute of limitations for the action. The same applies to any state or federal agency which rendered public assistance for support of the minor child.

How do i submit a form for back pay child support if im the child but grew up?

Most states do not allow a child to collect back support as an adult. Although the right to child support belongs to the child, support is payable to the custodial parent to assist in the care and upbringing of that child. If the custodial parent did not receive that support, then she (or he) made contributions that should have come from the other parent, and the right to collect the back support belongs to her.

No. There really is no such thing as "unused" benefits.

Able-bodied adult children or those who became disabled after age 22 cannot collect benefits from their mother's Social Security (FICA) contributions. The unpaid amount remains in the Social Security trust fund.
