If I understand your question correctly, you want to know if your grandchildren can get benefits on your Social Security record. I can't answer that with a yes or no without more information.

Can My Grandchild Get Benefits On His Deceased Grandfather's Record?

I currently receive widowers/survivors benefit. I have started the process to adopt my 3 1/2 yr old grandson. I called 800# social security & was told Maysen would be eligible for benefits & to go to my local social security office for assistance. When I inquired the agent got very upset & stated that their office will not pay out benefits because my husband is deceased & not alive to adopt him. What is the right answer?

Her daughter has been receiving SSDI payments ($55/mo) based on her mother's benefits.

Why Are My Son's Survivor Benefits Counted As Income?

My son recieves survivors benefits fro ssi. Why do they include this as my income for eligibility for me to put my daughter in day care. I have to prove every year that the money is spent on my sons needs not my daughters Daycare

Hi,

Well, your son's Social Security survivor benefits are his income, not yours or your daughter's. I don't know what kind of program you are referring to with regard to your daughter's daycare, but if they count your son's income, I assume it's counted as a part of your family income. That's just a guess, though.
