Receiving SSI Checks?

My ex-husband gets SSI and got a check for my 16 year son too. My son only lived with him for only 6 months and came back to live with me, but my ex-husband is keeping my son's checks. What can I do?

Call or visit your local Social Security office as only they can help you.

Only the Social Security office can help you.
Perhaps your son could go with you.

Benefits like this are usually paid to the guardian and not directly to the child. Does your divorce give you custody or is it "dual" custody?

Sometimes cases like this can be stalled over a legal issue but if you try to file a case you may/will be paid "back benefits" if it is settled in your favor. You will most likely NOT receive any money your ex-husband has already received or will receive while you wait around.

Go to your SS office and file so you will know where you and your son stand. Benefits may not be available for very long as your son is already 16 which means SS can discontinue checks at any time although usually they continue until 18 years of age (or 19 if the child is still in school).
