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.

That would depend on what one commits to. If one commits to a job, one would lose some free time, dependency on others, the uncertainty of tomorrow, and the routine of looking for a job. If one commits to a relationship one would lose some of their personal time, freedom to date others and total control of some decisions. If one commits to college, they would lose some personal freedom to study time and there would be some financial sacrifice. If one commits to having children they loose their personal identity.
