Thanks for the info. Do you know if SS pays for out of wedlock dependents? I wouldn't think that it would, but what the government does and what I would expect often don't coincide.
They do pay for dependants, but based on the identified parent’s income.
If you max out your SS payments each year, your identified dependants can collect about $3,200 between them.
If the income of your identified parent is less, you get less.
So there would be a little bit of an economic incentive for pensioners to go out and make children isn't there?
Only if you want to see your pension reduced, buy the same amount they give the kids.
Ahh, so there is no justification for the anti FLDS claims then. Unless the anti FLDS'ers don't think that FLDS people deserve to get SS.
I just calculated $3,885.50 per month for a surviving spouse of a deceased worker who made $90,000 per annum with one child.
Survivors Monthly benefit amount:
Your child $1,664.00
Your spouse caring for your child $1,664.00
Your spouse at normal retirement age $2,219.00
Family maximum $3,885.50
Yes, that agrees exactly with what I said. Your point?
I don't know if Gideon was the child of Dan Barlow's first and legal wife or one of his spiritual wives, thus I don't know the boy's legal status.
I do know that when Gideon was kicked out, his father failed to notify social security that the child was no longer his dependent and continued to collect benefits.
That was the point I was trying to make.
You did notice, I take it, that before your kids can collect on “survivors benefits”, you have to die?
Yes, it was caluclated for a surviving spouse and a child . . . duh.
So where did the $6000/month come from?
Because SS doesn’t do that.
Hello, remember this post? It is a bald-faced lie, and I am sick of it.
Go stuff a sock in it.
I guess you missed the posts with Patton. Any SS payments for the child would be deducted from the fathers benefits. It is a wash, the government doesn't pay any extra if the beneficiary has children or not.
While the following benefits are expressed as a percentage of an employee’s benefits, their payment does not reduce the employee’s benefit. The spousal benefit can be paid in addition to the employee’s Social Security benefit.
Married to the employee for at least 1 year, or, if less than 1 year, is the parent of the employee’s child, and meets one of the following age requirements:
a. Any age, with entitled child under age 16 or disabled in care (payment rate is 50% of employee’s full benefit).
b. Age 65 (50% of employee’s full benefit).
c. Age 62-64 (50% of employee’s full benefit, permanently reduced for each month of entitlement prior to age 65).
Divorced spouse, married to the employee at least 10 years, and meets one of the following age requirements:
a. Age 65 (50% of employee’s full benefit).
b. Age 62-64 (50% of employee’s full benefit, permanently reduced for each month of entitlement prior to age 65).
That was spousal benefits, we are talking about dependents.
a. Any age, with entitled child under age 16 or disabled in care (payment rate is 50% of employees full benefit).
pay for it by raising the taxes of every person who supported this debacle..
The ethnic underage mothers will never be investigated because there would be too much backlash..easier to pick on an unpopular target with not much public support. Too bad CPS didn’t figure on the support of people who care about the constitution.. there’s still a few of us left. The rest of the pseudo conservatives would rather simmer like the proverbial frogs in the pot.

Swinton was arrested on April 16, three days after Texas Rangers contacted Colorado Springs police about two telephone numbers from the Colorado Springs area they were investigating as part of the YFZ Ranch probe.
According to an arrest affidavit, Colorado Springs police told the Rangers that one of the numbers was associated with Swinton and that she has been known to make false reports of sexual abuse. The other number was later determined to be a cell phone belonging to a 31-year-old male named Courtney Swinton who lived in the same apartment complex as Rozita Swinton. Courtney Swinton's telephone was allegedly used by a woman named Sarah Barlow to call a battered women's shelter in Washington State between March 22 and April 8. According to the affidavit, Barlow said she was 16, that she had an infant daughter named Claire and that she had a "reassigned husband" named Uncle Merrill. According to the document, Texas investigators believed that was a reference to Frederick Merrill Jessop, the head of the YFZ Ranch.

Merrill is one of the men who has disappeared. His "Bishop's Record" hasn't been released.
In situations like this, a discerning person can also notice a lot of ironic, backward misinterpretation of religiosity on the part of secular people.
