Good Evening,

I will try to best answer your question.

Generally the answer will be no support. When you receive Social Security your minor children will receive a derivative benefit. In some cases this will completely offset your child support obligation and in other cases it will largely offset child support obligation. It depends upon the incomes of the parties. Unless you're running a substantially higher amount at the second job I do not believe there be any further support obligation.

I hope this information is helpful and wish you the best of luck

Well, depending on your salary you may owe additional support.
