In general, yes, SSDI is usually treated as income. How your child’s benefits are determined can vary by state, however. For example, in Tennessee, the parent who receives benefits treats their child’s SSD payments as gross income. This is important to note since child support payments are calculated based on parental income. Have more questions? Visit our website below!

How child support is determined can be confusing and overwhelming. So can the process for applying for and receiving SSDI. Working with a disability lawyer isn’t required when attempting to modify your child support payments; however, an attorney’s expertise and knowledge of the law can be valuable if you have to go to court.
