What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY&Fl
court ordered child support payments in deeming for ssi.
My husband pays nearly $600 a month, should it have been
subtracted from the earned income?
We have a huge overpayment and my son has no benefits
at all for 6 mos, and they say it will continue holding until paid in full.

Answer & Thanks

We went into the office and spoke with the people there. We were told that child support doesn't matter.
I made several phone calls and was told that child support doesn't matter, so we thought they were correct.
Just recently, while seeking information for something else, I came across information that said that it should be counted.
But I spoke to 2 offices...state and the 800# and was told "No" and "I don't know".
I just wanted to be clear on whether it counts or not.
I'd rather pay it off, but if the child support was counted then, there would be no overpayment.
