What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? MD
My question has to do with the amount of child support my child received from NCP compared to the amount of survivor benefits my child now receives. Original CS was calculated by shared income between me and NCP. Sadly, NCP recently passed. My sonís survivor benefits he receives are 3 times the amount of previous child support. My income was never used in the benefits calculation. Is this a normal for survivor benefits to be so much higher than regular child support? Has there been some type of calculation mistake?
Thanks in advance to anyone who has experience with this situation.
