Answer No, Social Security benefits regardless of the type are subject to garnishment for child support. Whenever there is a court order of any… sort in force the involved party must comply with the order until it is rescinded by the court.
If you are 65 and file for your Social Security benefits can you stop paying child support for a 17-year-old who is not your biological child because your ex will also receive SS benefits?
Answer The obligated parent cannot arbitrarily cease court ordered child support regardless of the circumstances. Child support is for the needs… of the minor child; that being the case, the custodial parent being eligible for SS benefits is not relevant. Another issue is, why the person is paying support for a non biological child if it does not pertain to adoption? The best option is for the obligated parent to discuss the specific circumstances with a qualified attorney.
If your son is receiving Social Security benefits from your earnings record are you still required to pay child support?
If there is a valid court order for child support in place, the order must be followed according to the terms, until it is amended or rescinded.

Does a parent on social security disability still have to pay child support payments even if that child is receiving benefits from social security?
The order needs to be modified to the amount already being received. see link
Yes. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected.

Can I receive back pay child support from my exhusband if I am collecting social security disability. Will my income be taken away from me?
Your Social Security eligibility is not affected by your receipt of child support. One is for you; the other is for your child.
The child's SSA benefit counts toward your child support obligation as if you had paid it yourself. You will owe the difference, if any. But, you need to file a modification t…o reduce the amount to the being paid by the SSA. see links
I'm not sure.
If the child's RSDI benefit is based on the obligor's SSA account, it is considered child support. If that benefit exceeds the amount ordered for child support, the obligor do…es not owe any additional payment.
Spousal benefits are about 1/2 as much per month as the primary gets. I'm sure there are exceptions.
It is easy to call the social security office. Apply first for your benefits, then call them to add your spouse. You will need to have both of you there, on the phone, or in p…erson, to answer their questions.
