Social Security determined me disabled in January 2011. I have a minor child who I support. During my times I couldn't work, I wasn't able to pay child support but borrowed money from family so that I could provide support to my son. This was an arrangement between ex-wife and I that as long as I provided his needs, she wouldn't press the issue. Now, I have been awarded SSDI and back child support has been taken. I have been providing child support, keeping him during the summers to eliminate child care. I have receipts as well of all support I provided. Can I submit this Social Security to show that I did provide support to my son and receive credit for that? Please advise.

No, you would need to submit your claim(s) not to the SSA but rather to the
child support enforcement agency (DCSE, perhaps) which submitted your
case as delinquent to the SSA in order to intercept any benefits which might be
paid to you and which are subject to garnishment for child support arrearages.
