I have 2 children with my ex and only the youngest is under 18. He owes arrearage which he pays 100.00 a month till 9/2014 which it will be paid off. He also is to pay 1/2 Florida Prepaid College fund till 9/2014. He was daignosed with a malignant brain tumor last year and now is on social security disaiblity as of 9/2012. He has not made any payments since June of 2012 and is telling me that the youngest social security benifits check she will recieve will be his payment. Is that correct? The social security office did not inform me of that and they told me I had to keep records of the money since it is the childs.

Benefits that the child receives from social security do not substitute for the support arrearages unless the family court has issued an order to that effect.
