The custodial parent (the one who has the child/children) is receiving SSI that is not included in the decision of the amount of support paid by the non custodial parent. If the non custodial parent is receiving SSD or SSI or other public assistance it is included in the decision for the amount of child support granted and such benefits can be garnished.

This depends on the type of Disability insurance you have and also how bad the ulcer is.

If the ulcer is preventing you from working in your job, then there is a chance you may qualify for benefits. If it does not affect your ability to work, then you should not expect to receive benefits. If you are counting on Social Security Disability, you should not expect to be paid disability benefits. Social Security is significantly more difficult to qualify for. You must essentially be unable to do any form of work, in order to be considered disabled and eligible for benefits.
