Social Security Disability

I have recently been approved for SSDI after my stroke and have a 10 year old daughter. I was wondering if I can apply her for child benefits even though I am not the custodial parent. I see her every week but her mother and I have different homes. We are not married but have good communication when it comes to our daughter.

 

Thanks for your help

Steve

Talk to a local expert in your area to get the best advice. If you do not know one talk to your local AARP Office as they should be able to direct you to one. Never take advice from the general public.

Do you pay child support to the mother by court order?

Sorry, it's not court ordered but  arraignment though the two of us.

There needs to be some documentation for it - written agreement between the two of you as to the amount; notarized with signatures and date would be good and/or they may ask for some proof that it has been paid during some relatively current time period.  Then you need to file for the child's  benefit.  I am not sure if they pay the allotted amount to you or to the mother.  

Call and ask them.
