All SS benefits are subject to court ordered child support collection.

Yes, all Social Security benefits are subject to garnishment for child support obligations.

If you mean the stepparent's Social Security, no.

There is no such thing as "social security child support." If the child's parent(s) is eligible for Social Security, the child is probably eligible, also. In such a case, the child's benefit is considered child support. If that benefit exceeds the amount ordered for child support, the obligor does not owe any additional payment.

Can back child support be withheld from social security benefits

Social Security is income for purposes of determining amount of child support.

Yes, but child support received must be reported to Social Security (or it's fraud).

Yes. All Social Security benefits are subject to garnishment for child support arrears and/or current obligation.

Child support is an obligation, social security is a source of income. They really have nothing to do with one another. If you are asking if she can garnish your social security, the answer is yes. Section 459 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 659) allows Social Security benefits to be garnished to enforce child support and/or alimony obligations;

Your Social Security eligibility is not affected by your receipt of child support. One is for you; the other is for your child.

Child support can be garnished from VA and Social Security payments (but not SSI). Your local child support agency can help you with this.

Social security payments for the husband stopped upon his death. If the child is under 22 (?) and is still in school, there may be payments due to the child. If you are receiving checks on your own behalf as a widow, those checks are not subject to child support payments. You can call Social Security directly or look online for this information.

If you die you cannot possibly pay child support. The custodial parent needs to apply for Survivor's Benefits through the Social Security Administration.

The amount designated by the laws of the state in which the child support order is issued.

I know if you receive SSI or SSDI you have not paid enough into the Social Security fund to receive legitimate Social Security so therefore it cannot be garnished for child support. So if they were not gainfully employed long enough to accrue some social security they do not have to pay you support.

Not automatically they are two separate issues. For a disabled child to collect SSI benefits they must qualify under the Social Security requirements. Visit Social Security Online for complete information.

In most states, yes, child support can be taken from all forms of income except for needs-based income (such as food stamps or housing assistance). Social security does not count as needs-based assistance and can be garnished for child support.

Probably not - in general, child support is a percentage of the obligor's net income.
