When I was awarded SSDI, my dependent child started receiving benefits as well. I opened a checking and savings account for him (the SSA required a savings account of some kind to save, with interest, what was not being used each month from his entitlement. He will become 18 soon and, now the SSA has sent a letter wanting me to return to them all monies saved or otherwise in his checking and savings accounts.
Will this money be returned to him once he turns 18? I went through all the trouble to open the accounts for him months ago. Why does the SSA want me to drain/close the accounts now?
