Answer A surviving spouse is usually entitled to such benefits, the main critieria for being eligible is her own SS status and how long the couple were married b…efore the death.
Answer Contact your local social security administration office.The child may qualify for social security survivors benefits every month until they are 18.…The other living parent may also be eligible for benefits until the child reaches a cetain age.
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.
Are minor children eligible for social security benefits if the parent worked less than a year and died?
According to the Social Security Administration to qualify for benefits, you earn "credits" through your work - up to four each year. When someone dies, their survivors may qu…alify for benefits if you have to earned enough credits, young people need fewer credits to be eligible. The law governing benefit amounts may change. For more information you need to visit socialsecurity.gov. You can also visit govbenefits.gov because you may also qualify for government benefits outside of social security

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,
It depends. When a spouse becomes deceased, the larger SS check continues. So if "Joe's" SS check is 600 and "Mary's" is 900. Then Joe will receive the 900 and no longer… receive the 600. The spouse will also receive a one time check for $255.
No. Unfortunately, survivor benefits are only paid if the deceased earned wages and accumulated sufficient credits through FICA taxes.
Possibly, if the mother was a legal dependent of the son. Otherwise, no.
Is it still possible to claim social security benefits from deceased parent that has gone unclaimed since death in 1962?
Most widows are eligible to receive benefits for a period of time from Social Security when their husband dies. You should also be eligible to receive the death benefit paymen…t from them, which is only $250 I believe. Every situation is different though and it is the Social Security Administration's call on these matters. You can find out some more information on their website at socialsecurity.gov and locate an area office, to contact for any more questions you may have.
Both your parents are deceased and you are going to school is there a way you can receive their social security benefits?
It could be possible. You would have to get this information from the SSA gov web site Social Security Online. Click on the below related link.
Do children with a deceased parent receive social security after age 19 if the are still attending school and have not yet graduated?
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.
I don't know in our case my ex my children's father worked part time receiving social security disability so that caused a $26,000 overpayment divided by two kids = 13 grand p…er child. Divorced I didn't know their dad was working so I filed a waiver which they returned to him in error. I moved then filed two more waivers so I didn't hear back for 14 months. Now my oldest child age 19 years was approved for SSI disabled from birth so now she is on the hook for the 13 grand! Tomorrow we plan on visiting the SSA office in person to file the fourth waiver so I guess they try to stick the overpayment on the child once they are an adult. We typed a letter stating my daughter is without fault and the overpayment would cause her to become homeless and starve to death so this time we plan on getting proof of us filing the waiver because even sending the waiver certified mail SSA claims I only filed ONE waiver. We will not leave until we have that proof in our hands plus get the reconsideration paperwork to file plus request a hearing in front of the judge. At the last hearing the judge heard testimony about her disability so we were not allowed to discuss anything else. Now SSA says the judge ruled she must pay back the 13 grand even though this wasn't the case. As the mother I was the payee so a child whether their parent is dead or not should not have to pay back any overpayment since they were a minor and the payee was their parent. SSA doesn't honor this so it will interesting to find out their excuse tomorrow I can't wait. I will make sure we request a hearing this will not be the end. Just file the waiver in person make sure that rep. for Soc. Sec. gives you proof most of the times they won't so it's frustrating to say the least. Without fault & you must state if you have to repay this debt it could leave you homeless & hungry!
The legal guardian of the minor child would be able to collect SS survivor benefits and quite likely additional support from the surviving parent. The child themselves would… not receive the support directly unless he or she is 19 years of age, unmarried and still in high school. If a child becomes disabled before he or she reaches the age of 22 they may still be able to receive survivor benefits until qualifying for SSI.
