Check your prior tax returns, which will list the children's SSN. You can get copies of prior returns from the IRS. If the divorce decree and separation agreement specified that you could claim as a dependent, and she doesn't provide the SSN, then you could file with the court to order...Read more »

There is too little in your statement to give a helpful answer beyond speculation. It may be SSA is just slow in getting you your back pay. They often take 3 months to process it and can take more time. At this point, no lawyer will want to help you because you have already won and they can make no...Read more »
My friend gets ssi and they take 250 out his check for his kids he doesnt know how they did that he has never work before he doesnt get any survivor benifits either so what can i do with my children father take him to court
Greetings from a steamy afternoon. If a person is receiving SSD, (Social Security Disability), there is derivative benefit for children, though when there is SSI (Supplemental) is means based and the person does not have a work history, there is no derivative for the children.
Since he is deceased, probably not much. If you can prove it, you may get the bank refund it, or the SSA to reissue the check, but it would almost certainly take more work than its worth unless they volunteer.

File a police report. They might help. Or contact your local legal aid, or sue the landlord in small claims court for wrongful eviction and the value of your things and the cost to find alternate living arrangements.
My husband is being held responsible for a ridiculously high overpayment from Social Security that can't possibly be paid by us. He was getting disability benefits for years due to his family inaccurately labeling him as disabled and then using his benefits for their own personal needs. I have... Read more »
Bankruptcy, while it may wipe out some other debts making this one easier to pay, isn't going to wipe this out. He needs a lawyer to help him demonstrate to SS that he didn't cause the overpayment or benefit from it so that they go after the right people and also so that he avoids...Read more »

Unfortunately, credits are not transferable between people. However you may be eligible for a spousal benefit off of your husband's record. You are correct in that you have to wait until your husband starts drawing his benefits in order to collect your spousal benefit.
Social Security is running about 18 months to 24 months. Probably your claim was denied and you did not receive the letter. Go to a Social Security attorney and have them file your claim. They will monitor it for you and do a professional job of presenting your case. If for some reason it is still...Read more »
