Do you know that your child, parent, or former spouse may be able to receive Social Security benefits based on your work record? If you qualify for Social Security, and you retire, become disabled, or die, your unmarried child under 18 may be eligible for benefits. If your child is a full time student in the twelfth grade or lower, benefits may be paid through age 19. College students are not eligible. Your child, who became disabled before the age of 22, may receive benefits as long as he/she remains disabled. Your adult child, disabled since childhood, may also apply for benefits on your record, even if receiving benefits on his/her own. The benefits will be computed on both records, and the higher of the two will be paid. These benefits apply to your natural born children and adopted children. Your stepchildren are also eligible if you provided more than ½ of their support and you have not divorced their natural parent. In certain circumstances, similar benefits can be extended to your grandchildren, even step-grandchildren. Although you may be aware of benefits for your child, you may not realize that, if you should die, your parent may be entitled to Social Security benefits based on your record. If your parent is over 62 and you were providing over ½ of his/her support at the time of your death, he/she may be eligible if they do not qualify for equal or greater benefits on their own record. To receive benefits based on your record, your parent may not remarry after your death. These benefits apply to your natural parents, adoptive parents, or stepparents, who became your stepparents before you were 16. Even your former spouse may be eligible for Social Security based on your work record. If you retire or die, and your marriage lasted for at least 10 years, your former spouse is entitled to spousal benefits. If your former spouse is caring for your natural, adopted or disabled child under the age of 16, he/she is eligible for spousal benefits regardless of the length of your marriage.

Without a Queen, Canada would become a republic and have a president as its Head of State. Over time, I expect the Canadian lifestyle would become even more similar to that of the American.
