Ky Supreme Court Published Opinion Today: Social Security Retirement Dependent Benefits

C.D.G. v. N.J.S.

Where child receives social security retirement dependent  benefits, and child support obligation of retired child support obligor is not modified, child support payor is entitled to a credit against child support. And, where such benefits are paid retroactively so there is a fund available for recoupement, trial court did not abuse its discretion in ordering mother to reimburse father for the 22 months of dependent benefits paid in a lump sum.
