When he tried to obtain a Medicaid card, Gideon Barlow learned that his 73-year-old father was drawing Social Security funds in Gideons name. Social Security allows retirement-age parents to collect money to help support children ages 16 or younger who are living at home.
I have no idea if any of Dan Barlow's spouses receive social security benefits, either on their own work record or on Dan's.
How old was Gideon Barlow? Money from SS for minors is deducted from the SS recipient, it is not extra money. Your story doesn't make any sense.
