I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
There is no requirement to give the benefits to the custodial parent - but the funds must be spent for the benefit of the child
Typically, it is the custodial parent who gets the benefit. It is rare for the non-custodial parent to get the benefit
The custodial parent is a disabled veteran and is receiving SS benefits for the child. Should the benefits be going to the custodial parent?
The benefits need to go to the child's benefit, and typically it's the custodial parent who can best accomplish that
So how to you make the payments go to the custodial parent. Is there someone to contact at Social Security Administration?
Yes - all you need to do is call 1-800-772-1213 and tell them you wish to change the representative payee
