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.

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.

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:
