Can a child receive their deceased parent's Social Security if they are also receiving food stamps and Calworks?

Hi,

Food stamps and other types of public assistance have no effect on a person's entitlement to Social Security benefits, nor the rate of the benefits payable. However, receipt of Social Security benefits could effect the person's eligibility for food stamps and other public assistance payments.
