Is it possible to receive unclaimed Social Security benefits from a parent?
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 benefits, 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.
