Possibly, if the mother was a legal dependent of the son. Otherwise, no.
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.
If you and your ex husband were married for at least 10 years, and if you are the required age to received Social Security benefits, then yes, you are. You can only draw SS fr…om one source, be it his, yours, or your second husband's (if you have been married at least 10 years). But you can file on the one that will pay the most.
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 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
Yes you can. "A deceased worker's former spouse age 60 or older (as early as age 50 if disabled) may qualify for benefits if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. However, a …former spouse does not have to meet age and length-of-marriage rules if he or she is caring for the deceased worker's child younger than age 16 or disabled and entitled to benefits on the deceased worker's record. The child also must be the former spouse's natural or legally adopted child." (From the Social Security website.) So basically you have to have been married for at least 10 years and be at least 60, 50 if disabled.
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.
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.
She can get a widows' benefit at age 60
100% unless she getting her s.s check then she will receive the highest paid of the two.. but will not received double dip (getting paid twice)
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.
Yes, but the benefit amount will depend upon the surviving spouse's current income level.
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.
Is it still possible to claim social security benefits from deceased parent that has gone unclaimed since death in 1962?
