    When your child gets ssi, do you have to document what out is spent on? I think I am clear on what I can spend it on.

    I have never been asked to prove what it was spent on, but once a year I get a form to fill out that ask how much was spent supporting the child, how much was given to the child and how much was saved.

    That sounds reasonable. I just did not want to all of a sudden have to figure out documentation

    Absolutely not. I get the once-a-year form also. The only time I have to provide any documentation is IF I put anything in savings. Then they want the account number, names on the account, etc. 99% of the time it is all spent on supporting my kids so I never have that issue anymore.

    Sometimes if you get back pay or something they will put it in a different kind of account... I have friends this has happened to. they have had those restricted to only certain direct care kinds of things... and, some parents here have been told to keep their receipts.

    But the regular checks have not been audited or anything.
