Can children receive incarcerated parents social security?
The USA Social Security Administration states that children who receive benefits through an incarcerated parent: "Although you cannot receive monthly Social Security benefits while you are confined, benefits to your spouse or children will continue as long as they remain eligible."

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.
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.
There is a child benefit check until the child reaches age 18.
No. Unfortunately, survivor benefits are only paid if the deceased earned wages and accumulated sufficient credits through FICA taxes.
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. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected.

Answer To be your dependent, a person must be either your qualifying child or your qualifying relative. Generally, a person is your qualifying relative if that pe…rson: * Lives with or is related to you, * Does not have $3,300 or more of gross (total) income, * Is supported (generally more than 50%) by you, and * Is neither your qualifying child nor the qualifying child of anyone else. For details, see Exemptions for Dependents in Publication 501 Answer Answered my own question from William Perez's Tax Planning Blog (http://taxes.about.com/b/a/238014.htm) Parents would fall under the category of "qualifying relatives" under the new rules for claiming a dependent. Under these rules, you can claim your parents as dependents if they each earn less than $3,200 in taxable income and you provide more than half of their total financial support. If their only source of income is Social Security, then none of their Social Security benefits are taxable, and they would have zero taxable income. In that situation and you provided over half of their financial support, then yes you can claim your parents as dependents. (And they don't have to live with you either, since there's no residency requirement for parents.)
yes you will need to file with the social security office, complete necessary paperwork and submit a copy of the death certificate and your birth certificate proving that was …your parent
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.
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.
In Federal Laws
