Sorry for the confusion. I have two children. I was made representative payee for the older of the two and she will turn 18 in August. I have her 100% of the time. This post was in regards to my younger daughter that I have only 50% of the time. When SS set up their accounts (2/11) they asked me how I wanted it set up. Wanting to try and keep things even, I just told them I would handle the older child's and he could handle the younger ones. Now that the support order (issued subsequently) has come out l'm confused and have to figure out if I should file an objection. The referee basically said they weren't going to make a recommendation on what happens with the lump sum money. He got the entire amount for the younger one. She also calculated support, gave him credit for the SS payment and came up with a figure he has to pay me. Problem is - I'm not getting the SS payment - he's the representative payee. I don't know if I should file an objection with Friend of the Court or appeal to the SSA to be made representative payee for the younger one. He has no arrearages.
