OK, I think you are saying the following, but please correct me if I am misunderstanding: 1) You are separated from your spouse, but not divorced.2) You receive both your own SS benefit and that of your child, who has dependent benefits based on your disability, but your child does not live with you.3) You are wondering if you will get in trouble because the Representative Payee has not been changed to your ex, who lives with the child. Does the above sum up what you would like to know about the SS situation?
