If The Non-Custodial Parent Receives Social Security Benefits, Can Dcse Still Collect Support For Me?
DCSE can usually assist a custodial parent in the collection of support from Social Security Disability benefits, but not from SSI benefits (federal regulations prohibit the collection of support when a noncustodial parent is collecting SSI or welfare benefits). Some courts may choose not to enter an order if a noncustodial parent receives Social Security benefits. Also, some courts may credit a lump sum paid to the dependents by the Social Security Administration toward the noncustodial parent`s arrearage.
