Customer Question

I will be 68 years old this September, self employed in my own business, divorced with 3 adult daughters but I have a seven year old daughter from my girlfriend. I wanted to file for social security benefits for me and my daughter as a dependent now so I can put her money to a 529 Educational trust. I don't need money now for me and I wanted to file and suspend the benefits till I'm 70. Can my daughter start receiving her money if I suspend mine?

Yes, she can. However, you must file and suspend before April 30, 2016 in order for your daughter to receive benefits under your earnings.
