Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposed only.
If a parent of a child is on disability, then the child is entitled to dependent's benefits from SSDI. Furthermore, the child support guidelines for child support payments in NY is 17% of income for one child. You need to raise this in the court, since the offer does not meet the child support guidelines and also you can get the court to order him to apply for dependent benefits under SSDI.

Thank you for your reply.
NY goes based off of the percentage of the non-custodial parent's income. Here is the NY Child Support Calculator: http://www.nyc.gov/html/hra/html/services/child_support_calculator.shtml
