Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Unfortunately, if you are referring to SSDI benefits, child support can be deducted from your Social Security Disability.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

I know that and they already deduct it. However, social security will be paying benefits to my kids through my ex-wife on my behalf. They are paying backpay to each child in the amount of $4,551 per child. It goes to my ex-wife in her name. How do the taxes work?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
am i entitled to any of the backpay?
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 8 months ago

If those payments are for back child support/payments, you would not be entitled to any of it.

Child support is not taxable income to your ex-wife.

No they are not. It is backpay for the time we were married.
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 8 months ago

Thank you for the additional information.

If it is back pay due to your children, you would not be entitled to it, and it is not taxable income.

she gets to keep $18,000 on top of the child support I pay each month?
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 8 months ago

If it's back pay that is due to your children, yes.
