My husband passed away in 2012. At that time our kids were 3,9, 13. My oldest child turns 18 this month. Each child used to receive $1,568 in benefits but now two younger children are suppose get $2,020 each. I am trying to understand why the whole amount ($1,568*3 which I assume our family maximum benefits) did not get redistributed over the remaining children after my oldest turned 18. What will happen when my second child turns 18?
I'm sorry for your loss.
