The obligated parent cannot arbitrarily cease court ordered child support regardless of the circumstances. Child support is for the needs of the minor child; that being the case, the custodial parent being eligible for SS benefits is not relevant. Another issue is, why the person is paying support for a non biological child if it does not pertain to adoption? The best option is for the obligated parent to discuss the specific circumstances with a qualified attorney.

When you are awarded Social Security Disability why do you have to repay a portion of your benefit to the insurance carrier when you paid LTD benefits through your employer with after tax dollars?

There are two circumstances in which you would have to repay benefits once you qualify for Social Security disability benefits:The first is if you own an individual Disability policy that includes a Social Insurance offset benefit. Social Insurance benefits are benefits that the insurance company pays on a disability claim, but will offset dollar-for-dollar with social security benefits.The second is if someone receiving benefits from a group Disability policy is eligible for social security benefits. Every group policy will have a provision in the contract that explains how benefits will be handled when a claimant is eligible for social security benefits. As much as group policies are great because they are less expensive and usually can be obtained without medical underwriting, the contract itself is not as good. In a sense, you get what you pay for. Most group disability policies will offset dollar-for-dollar with any social security benefits received, including personal and family benefits. In many situations the amount you will receive from the actual disability insurance company will be minimal.More specific to the question being asked - it can take a long time for social security benefits to be approved and paid. Therefore, many times the insurance companies will pay out benefits during months in which a claimant was technically eligible for social security benefits. Once the social security benefits are approved and paid, the claimant will be expected to repay the insurance company for all benefits paid that would otherwise have been offset. A claimant will not be expected to repay benefits for months in which they were not eligible for social security disability benefits.

Can you draw social security and railroad retirement benefits?

I worked for the Fed Govt for 35 yrs before that I worked and paid 48 quarters into Social Security, my wife worked for the Railroad and was covered by Railroad Retirement, we are now retired. My Social Security was reduced under the Windfall Elimination Clause of the Social Security Act. I was entitled to a portion of my wife's Railroad Retirement Benefits. The Railroad Retirement Board recently informed me that they were reducing my benefits because I have a Federal pension. This is a double hit, since my Social Security benefits have already been reduced by 45%? I have appealed this ruling and hope to have it reversed. Can they reduce both benefits due to a Federal pension being drawn?

How do you raise Social Security benefits for when you retire?

There are at least two important factors involved in increasing your Social Security benefits. The first is, earn as much money as you possibly can because the benefits you receive at retirement are tied directly to how much you paid into the system during your working years. The second is, vote. Be aware that some politicians want to dismantle Social Security and reduce benefits because of the cost. Don't cast a vote for anyone who wants to eliminate important financial safety nets, and don't sit home on election day thinking your one vote doesn't count, because it does. It's also a good idea to learn as much as you can about saving and investing some of your take-home pay so that you're not entirely dependent on Social Security benefits when you retire.
