  • A complicated question about benefits.

    Dear Sir,

    I have a very complicated benefits question. Many years ago, I married a widow who had an 18 year old daughter. After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a number of times, and he fell in love with my step daughter. My father eventually married her without my authorization.

    As a result my step-daughter became my step mother and my father became my son in law.

    My fatherís wife (also my step daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my step daughterís mother. This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father.

    As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my fatherís wife. Therefore it appears that I am also my wifeís grandchild. A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my fatherís brother-in-law, the step-son of my fatherís wife, and my uncle. My son is also my step motherís brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.

    In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following: Does my son, who is also my uncle, my fatherís son-in-law and my step motherís brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare benefits?

    Sincerely yours,




    Of course you qualify, Mohammad! I have arranged to start mailing the checks to all of you just as soon as you arrive here in California.

    Yours faithfully,
