Receiving Social Security Benefits While in School

I am 17 and I no longer live with my mom. She gets SSA from my father for me. I have now been with my father for two years and I have no money for myself. Is it her right to still get the money now that I am not there and she put me out of the home that my money pays for?

You can call or go to the SS office and they will help you. If your Mom has a custody order she has the right to get the money, but if you are living with your Dad, the SS office can help you get all that changed.

Nobody can answer this except the people at your local Social Security office. Please contact them and they will inform you of your rights.

If the SSA is to support you and she isn't supporting you, that in and of itself I'd fraudulent. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting you report your Mom for fraud! On the contrary, she probably has no idea that it is just like you don't know who's supposed to be getting the money right now, she doesn't either. Truthfully, for a long time, she probably supported you with no financial help from anyone but herself. Mom's do that often. Back to the matter at hand. If the money is intended to be used for you, it should be.


Because you're only 17 and it's coming out of your Dad's benefits, they will probably put someone in charge of distributing the money to you for your needs so you use it wisely. Don't be surprised if they appoint your Mom since she may be who they determine knows your needs best. Go to SSI with an appointment set up, (call to set one), bring all the needed paperwork, address info for the past five years, same for work and school, taxes, etc and you can get it all straightened out! Remember to be nice to your only get one Mom and one Dad!
