Social Security Question:
Social Security Answer:
I have a aunt who is at wits end. She was living with and taking of a man with a disability and drawing ssi, She was his caregiver. Together they had a child, They did not marry as she was trying to complete a course to get a degree and certification to get a better job and get herself and her children off welfare. Because of his inability to drive, she would take him to his medical appointments together they purchased a car. the car and the loan for it is in her name, as his credit was to bad to qualify. Together they were surviving in a section 8 rented house. Problem is he left the family unit, maybe because of feelings of inadequacies in providing for his family, we don't know. I read that the child can get a ssd monthly check because his father is permanently receiving a ssi check. What about my aunt, she has responsibilities payment on this 2004 Chrysler van, utilities, rent, and ect. Because the car is worth over 10,000 dollars what can she do?

If the man living with your aunt was on SSI, there are no benefits for anyone else but the disabled person. If he was on SSDI, then the child might be eligible for a childs benefit. Since your aunt was not married to the man, she would not get mothers benefits. She should call SS and see what benefits he was receiving and if she might get some benefits for the child. She should call Welfare now, there are benefits for a mother with a child and also she might eligible for child-care services, so she can find a job.....Carol
