    SSI benefits are NOT automatically exempt - the law reads: " The exceptions are that benefits are subject: (1) to the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to make levies for the collection of delinquent Federal taxes and under certain circumstances delinquent child support payments; and (2) to garnishment or similar legal process brought by an individual to enforce a child support or alimony obligation."

    I don't understand how your ex-wife's husband could be collecting benefits for a non-blood person (your son). Maybe someone else knows. I know a natural parent can collect benefits and child support at the same time, the total amount of support being reduced by the benefits.

    Ssd child support
    In va. Ssi and ssd are very different, I have seen legal papers that say if a person is approved for ssd then they are child support exempt in va... Is this true and where can I find that info,, thanks:confused:

    It's confusing when you post two threads with the same question - I'm going to see if I can carry this over to the first thread.

    My post addressed SS Disabiity, NOT SSI - I posted wrong but the quote is right. SSD is NOT exempt. In reading this it appears to be Federal Law, not State law, that prevails.
