If he applies for benefits for his step children, and wins that claim, yes, his "family max" will be split among them. However, he has to have been providing the financial support for these children like a father, for them to be HIS dependent and be eligible. If they have two parents supporting them (such as their bio father), then in theory these children should NOT be eligible for dependent benefits from his work record.

last question, when the claim goes through and he gets to claim her children as his dependents, will social security retro the benefit, will the social security make me pay back the benefits my daughter got? be like 1k for each month of over payment. Thank you for your help
Social Security Expert: Stephanie O Joy, Esq, Soc. Sec. Attorney replied 2 years ago

If he were to succeed in getting those kids counted as his dependents, yes, it can go back up to 12 months potentially. However, I'd share with him THIS: What his biological child gets in SSD auxiliary benefits on his record, due to his disability, can be credited him by the family court for his CHILD SUPPORT - as such, it can reduce or negate his child support obligation. If he chooses to apply for his step children, he will be taking from his own child and he will no longer be able to keep that reduction or elimination of child support obligation. At present, he has no obligation to his step children, but he does to his biological child. He can either pay it in child support or let his child get his rightful dependent benefits in full (a full 50%). Hope this helps.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
not a new one since 2010, it was based on his employment not sence june 2014 of his disability. He wants my attny to write one, however we have a child support trail in March.
Social Security Expert: Stephanie O Joy, Esq, Soc. Sec. Attorney replied 2 years ago

Has he been paying the CS obligation from the existing order that was based on his old income? How much is he paying?

Also, do the step children have a father who pays child support?

social security paid 1379 since june 2014, he moved in with his current wife june 2014 and married her may 2015.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i doubt it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was wondering how far back for the social sucurity would go and to whom I would pay it back to and do they have a payment plain, I want to avoid garnishment to my wages at work?I get that it could start this year and I can prepare for that, but retro pay would devistate me financially.
Social Security Expert: Stephanie O Joy, Esq, Soc. Sec. Attorney replied 2 years ago

OK, then he only was the step father since 5/2015. Generally, with disability, it only goes back 12 months. But the children have to be his dependents, so if they have a dad, who is legally obligated, one could argue that step dad is NOT then the supporter of 1/2 their needs: mom is 1 and bio dad is other 1/2.

Yes, they have payment plans. They are pretty good about that, particularly when this is clearly not an 'at fault thing'.
