Brother raising his daughter, but ex is getting the check

My brother found out a few years ago he has lukemia and was diabled.
His wife left him as soon as she found out he was sick. Instead of taking her daughter with her to raise her she left her with my brother, thank goodness. Because she is not a good mother. But here is the problem!
Even though his ex (they are seperated but NOT divorced yet) is not raising her daughter she is getting her daughters social security check every month. Well my brother has called the SSO many times to tell them that HE is raising his daughter and his ex is still recieving the check!
The Social security office won't even talk to him about it! Why?? I thought if someone was recieving a check and abusing the system they would at least listen to him! Who would he talk to about this if nobody will listen? He can't afford a lawyer to get a divorce much less to fight her on any of this! His lukemia has put a strain on him finacially. He should be getting that check to help raise his daughter! Not the Ex, that uses it on drugs! Please tell us what he can do!

The 'Optiomal' Age to Claim Social Security Benefits : 65

According to a study, the optimal Social Security claiming age for a 55-year-old single man with a life expectancy of 76 is age 65, according to a HealthView Services analysis.

This of course depends on health and life expectancy, but since delaying Social Security benefits results in an 8 percent higher benefit, it's best to not claim early according to a HealthView Services analysis.
