Thanks for posting that! It answered my question:

No, children under the age of 18 (19 if still in high school) who receive Social Security benefits are NOT eligible for the one-time payment. However, disabled adult children will receive a payment.

You are wrong. MINOR (disabled) children who receive SSI will receive a payment. Go back and read the Frequently Asked Questions again. It says, Will children who receive SSI get a payment? The answer is YES -- not just adult children, minor children.

Also, you might try reading the last sentence of this story on Goerie, which clearly states which children will receive a payment ... those receiving SSI.
You missed it in the story AND on the SS Frequently Asked Questions? Your IQ again is .... what?

Apparently you and I both confuse SS and SSI. If a child is receiving SS (as in a deceased parent), they will not receive it, as per the copy and paste. If they are receiving SSI, they will receive it, per THIS copy and paste:

Yes, disabled children receiving SSI are eligible for the one-time payment.

I'm sure ALL the parents who get this $250 will spend it on their children, though, right? And the person will get $1000 for their four ADD kids? Well, I'm sure they already have a flat-screen TV and a Wii, so maybe THIS one will go for the kids.

No, I don't at all confuse SS and SSI. YOU may -- but I don't, as clearly evidenced by my post. Does your disabled son get SSI? If he does, then he -- like other minor SSI recipients -- will get the $250 payment.
I don't presume to know at all what the parents of these minor children will use the stimulus check for -- and neither do you, although you readily make negative assumptions. You sound SO bitter, Kmac. What has made you so resentful of anything positive that happens for anyone outside yourself?

You wanted a cut-and-paste? Here it is, from the SS Frequently Asked Questions, answer 1782:

Question
Are children who receive SSI benefits eligible for the one-time economic recovery payment?
Answer
Yes, disabled children receiving SSI are eligible for the one-time payment.

It also says that in the last line of the Goerie story accompanying this thread.

Again, I posted a cut and paste that you still apparently refute. Children who get SS do not get the stimulus payment. Care to admit you were wrong?

No, my son does NOT and will NOT get disability, because I don't want him to have it as a crutch to avoid working when he is older. He, like our other kids, is raised with something foreign to many on this board: a WORK ETHIC. If he were physically disabled, of course I would get him on SSI to help with expenses or put away for his care needs.

I know what people spend it on, because I see it on a daily basis. I see people who hide income from Section 8, yet have 72" flat screen TVs in their houses; I see people who pay $25 a month for a 4 bedroom townhouse with all utilities included complain because their rent went up to $40 due to a questionnaire THEY filled out which states how much money they are given by others for their expenses.(Apparently they don't mind "borrowing" $80/month for car insurance, but they sure mind "borrowing" $40 a month for a house.)

If you think I'm bitter because I don't like people defrauding the government, that would indicate a problem on your part, not mine, beck.

From what I understand, there are a lot of drug addicts who get ss because they are "sick"....I figure that 250 bucks will help them for a day.....

WHY do you keep saying that I indicated children who receive SS (death benefits) will get a payment??? I never said that at all! YOU said they would not get a payment. YOU said ONLY "adult children" on disability WOULD get a payment -- which was clearly wrong.
Read back through EVERY comment I have made this morning ... aain and again, I said, MINOR CHILDREN ON SSI, SSI, SSI. I have REPEATEDLY said the ONLY minor children who WILL get a stimulus payment (NOT "adult children", as you said -- MINOR children, as indicated on the Social Security Web site AND in the Goerie article) ARE THOSE RECEIVING SSI. That is DISABILITY ... not death benefits.
God, your comprehension skills are nil! You can't even comprehend simple sentences! Read BACK through my posts ... NOWHERE did I say children who get only SS checks will get a stimulus payment. I have stated from my first post that that is NOT the case -- ONLY SSI recipients will get a payment. Try to read slowly, line by line, word by word ... you'll get it in time.

The part of your post that I "refute" is your indication that ONLY "ADULT CHILDREN" who get SSI will receive a payment. That is NOT what Social Security says. ALL children -- adult, minor, doesn't matter -- who are ON SSI will get the payment. Got that yet, Kmac???

You consistently run down and badmouth the very people you evidently, in your work, are SUPPOSED to be helping. You gladly take a paycheck to SERVE these people ... while resenting, hating and dissing them regularly.
I REALLY think you should find a job that suits you better -- you're NOT an asset to these low-income people you were obviously hired to help.
You remind me of an executive at one of the local homeless shelters -- a man in charge of providing services and assistance to the lost souls living there -- who is very outspoken about his disgust and contempt for the people he is supposed to serve. I don't understand WHY our local service organizations tolerate this in people they have hired to help the unfortunate. You are one that I'd get rid of in a heartbeat, if I was overseeing such a program.
Do you share these thoughts about your clients with your bosses? Do the higher-ups funding your programs KNOW how you view these people as pond scum?
You make a wild assertation that ALL people with a disabled child are going to spend their stimulus check on a flat-screen TV. Whassamatta ... resentful that YOU don't have a flat-screen TV?
You sound SO bitter ... and there's a solution to your anger. If you don't like the situation -- change it! If you hate your job and the clients you serve -- find another job!

stupid shit to give $250 to people, no matter who they are... Why are we throwing money around? Is this an effort on the government to try and make us feel good on the inside?

Give $250 to a person, they will spend it. That is what the government really wants anyway. They want the nation of consumers to start consuming again to start the economic wheels to move.
This money goes to many people that are not going to go an place that money in investments or in the bank to save. That is what economists want to avoid. They want the cash to keep moving, from hand to hand.

So ok, give the money to people on SSI, SS, SSDI, and on Railroad Retirement funds. Get those *training* wheels moving...

I know that I'm pissed that people would use money intended for their children to buy flat-screen TVs. I have several such televisions, so that's not the reason. It's that the money is supposed to be used for the children's basic needs, and last I checked, a 42" LCD TV wasn't one of them.

You are right there Mary P....I got a better one for you, my cousin in Florida says that there are pedifiles in prison down there who get SSI because they claim to be sick too...that tops it....I didn't know that, now we all know it, as if it is going on down in Florida, sure as hell is going on in every prison in the states. How's that for a kick in the head?

No ... disabled ADULT children are NOT the only ones who will receive a payment. MINOR CHILDREN on SSI will receive a payment, too.
Is that simple enough for you? Do you note the "SSI" ... minor children ON SSI???
I can't believe it takes an hour to get through to you.
Did you read the FAQ? This is what it said:

No, children under the age of 18 (19 if still in high school) who receive Social Security benefits are NOT eligible for the one-time payment. However, disabled adult children will receive a payment.

Don't blame me, blame the frikkin' FAQ. If you wish to further beat this dead horse, you're on your own, beck.

I know a few people on SSI and I know for a fact that nothing is wrong with them they went to the hearing and lied and Guess what? they got on SSI. I don't think they should get a damn penny none of them.
