My dad is trying to take my money from me and i'm not sure how to handle the situation.
I am going on 20 and still live with my parents. My dad recently got social security disability. I made a bank account and my dad took me to the social security office so that I could apply for social security to receive money for living at home. I get a one time payment for the time I was living at the house while still in highschool, until I turned 18.I get about $1,100. My dad told me that I can only have $350 of the $1,100. The money is sent straight to my bank account and is in my name and everything. They can't access my account in any way to get the money unless I take it out and give it to them. My dad says that it is his money. He is already getting money from my brother living at home and being under the age of 16, he gets paid monthly for that until my brother is 18. The money he gets from my brother will be around $11,000 and he is taking all of it, my brother doesn't get any of it. Plus, my dad gets his disability money, which will be around $20,000. The $1,100 will help me get a place of my own.
