If a parent receives Social Security Disability (SSDI) or retirement benefits, his or her minor children can also receive a monthly benefit until age 18, or age 19 if the chil…d is still in elementary or high school. Extended benefits terminate at the end of the school year, or two months after the child's 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. Social Security is a federal program; the rules are the same regardless of your state of residence. There are different rules for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a form of welfare for disabled people and those over 65 who have little other income and few assets. People frequently confuse SSDI and SSI. SSI rules and payments vary somewhat by state.
No, or very rarely at least. Social Security ends when you either turn 18, or when you graduate from High School. The age that children of a deceased parent stop receiving S…ocial Security is age 18, after they graduate from High School. They can receive it until 19, if they haven't graduated high school and still attending. I called Social Security after I posted my first comment. When they turn 18, they can have their money direct deposit to their account if the child wants, or they choose to have a check sent to them direct, until they graduate at age 19,
Yes, call 1 800 772 1213
If a working parent has met all the other criteria, then upon his death his dependents would qualify for Social Security benefits. By dependents, I mean children, spouses, etc…. There is no cause of death clause in Social Security survivor benefits, like you would find in a standard life insurance policy. 33% of Social Security benefits are given to adults. Whether there is a surviving parent does not matter. In fact the surviving spouse would also receive survivor benefits.
Minor children become eligible for dependent benefits at the same time you become eligible for disability or retirement benefits. If you are on Social Security, but your min…or children aren't receiving a monthly payment, you may have neglected to fill out some of the paperwork or provide some of the documentation necessary to the process. You will need to take your and your children's birth certificates to your local field office, or contact Social Security by phone at 1-800-772-1213 between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm EST.
No. A person who lives for more than 30 days in a tax-supported facility, like jail, prison or a nursing home, cannot receive Social Security benefits. If the person is later …released, he or she can begin receiving payments again, but will not be paid back benefits for the time spent incarcerated.
Do children with a deceased parent receive social security after age 19 if the are still attending school and have not yet graduated?
Which divorced parent with joint custody should receive your dependent children social security benefits?
It should have been clarified in the divorce settlement. But if it wasn't, then the one paying child support should be the one to claim them. If neither of you are paying chil…d support due to joint custody, here are a couple of options: One of you can claim half the kids, the other claim the other half. If you have three kids (can't claim half a kid), then one year one of you claim two kids, the other claims one, then alternate the next year. You can claim all of the kids, then alternate each year. One year you claim all of the kids, the next your ex claims them.
Possibly. Of course there are some strict regulations as to why they get them and how much. The link below will take you to the Social Security Administration page for Benefit…s for Children.
Only if underage
yes the children with deceased parents get social security benefit's. but only if the parents were workers in the US.
No. There really is no such thing as "unclaimed" Social Security benefits. If a person pays FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes but dies before he or she can collect ben…efits, his or her widow or widower and minor children, or adult children disabled before age 22 (if applicable) can collect monthly checks for survivors' benefits. Able-bodied adult children or those who became disabled after age 22 cannot collect money from a parent's Social Security (FICA) contributions. The unpaid amount remains in the Social Security trust fund. It is possible that a deceased parent was due one monthly Social Security payment at the time of death. Under these circumstances, the benefit can be paid to the next of kin. For more information, see Sources and Related Links, below.
