What "dependent's money" are you referring to? You own refund can be offset for delinquent student loans. If you have a dependent who is filing a return, the dependent's refund will not be taken for your student loan debt.
If you are delinquent on student loans, they could take part or all of your refund including amounts you receive for dependents.
In the event your dependents file a tax return, the IRS would not take their refund for any delinquent student loans of yours.
