<font size=3><b><i>New Child Support Laws in Minnesota</b></i>

Child Support and Social Security /Veterans Benefits
Minnesota social security disability and veterans benefits for child support, lawyers, attorneys

Minnesota Statutes have changed and now indicate that social security disability benefits paid on behalf a child are included in gross income for the parent with a disability but are deducted from the child support amount payable if received by the other parent. This is codified in Minnesota Statutes Section 518A.31 which states in pertinent part:

518A.31 SOCIAL SECURITY OR VETERANS' BENEFIT PAYMENTS RECEIVED ON BEHALF OF THE CHILD   

The amount of the monthly Social Security benefits or apportioned veterans' benefits provided for a joint child shall be included in the gross income of the parent on whose eligibility
the benefits are based.

The amount of the monthly survivors' and dependents' educational assistance provided  for a joint child shall be included in the gross income of the parent on whose eligibility the  benefits are based.

If Social Security or apportioned veterans' benefits are provided for a joint child based on the eligibility of the obligor, and are received by the obligee as a representative payee for the child or by the child attending school, then the amount of the benefits shall also be subtracted from the  obligor's net child support obligation.

If the survivors' and dependents' educational assistance is provided for a joint child based on the eligibility of the obligor, and is received by the obligee as a representative payee for the
child or by the child attending school, then the amount of the assistance shall also be subtracted from the obligor's net child support obligation.
