    Not sure if this is the right forum catergory, but if not, I know my fellow Hubbers will get me where I need to go.
    Does anyone know anything about Child Disability with Social Security? I was advised by one of my daughters many doctors to apply as I am limited to where and when I can work w/ her intensive care. So I applied and was told that I need to open a dedicated account for her and it can only be used for medical expenses?
    I was familiar that if you had back pay you would be required, but for monthly checks as well? I dont understand how that helps if you cannot spend it? (Insurance covers all her medical expenses and orthotics, therapies, etc).

    Is anyone familiar with this? I have Googled my butt off and can only find info regarding the back-pay.

    Thanks much!
