Do I need to contact the Social Security Disability Office to set up an appointment for my children if their father is approved for benefits?

1 Answers. Asked on Jul 27th, 2012 on Social Security Disability - South Carolina
More details to this question:
My ex husband has applied for disability benefits in the last year or so and stated to me the children will receive a check within a few weeks. He wants me to dismiss his child support in the next few days; however, I have not received anything from the social security office regarding their eligibility for benefits since their father was just approved. I know he has been dealing with getting approved in the last year or so.

No.  SSA either will contact you or has the necessary information from your ex-husband.

As to child support, that's for an expert in that area, and I sincerely recommend that you seek legal counsel before making such a drastic move.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
