If 3 children receive same amount of survivors benefits, when oldest graduated from high school, should their $ be given to remaining 2 children or dropped? I was told when applying the total could be split by the 3 or given all to one so expected when child graduated to still have that amount for other 2 but it was dropped
My son is going on 15yrs old.. he has a half sister that will be 18 this month. They both receive $820 a month for survivor payments. Once his sister turns 18 , how much will my son then receive?
Hi Larry myself and my husband are separated but we both receive Social Security disability and my children were receiving a benefit from me of 160 and a benefit from their father of nine hundred and something.
One is my granddaughter’s will be living with me her father is deceased she is 19 years will she get any benefits
Hi. If your granddaughter is age 19, then she'd probably only qualify for Social Security benefits is if she's disabled. For a child to qualify for benefits on the record of a parent or grandparent, they must be either a) under age 18, b) 18 to 19 and attending high school, or c) disabled.
My daughter passed..she has 2 children..1 have custody of an the father custody of the the other.will the survivor benefit amount be split between the 2 of them..?? Example if it would b 2000.00 monthly would each only get 1000.00 monthly?
Am I allowed to receive social security for my eight year old twins if I am on disability insurance??
Can my adopted grandchild restrict his benefits exclusively to my husbands earnings record who is currently filing so that I may receive child care benefits? I assume he can only file on one benefit at a time and currently his survivor benefit from his mother is higher than 50% of my husbands record. However, the combined benefit up to the family maximum that we would receive would be higher than the survivor benefit alone. Is this possible?
Does my child get 50% of my FRA PIA benefit amount even though I filed for reduced benefit at 62 or does she get 50% of my reduced benefit 62 amount? My understanding is even though I filed early with reduced benefit at 62 she would still get 50% of my FRA amt (or my PIA). She will be in high school and under age 19 from my age of 62-66.
My sons father passed away in 2015. He left behind 3 children. They all receive survivors benefits or 1200*3. The oldest child is about to be 18. What happens then? Do the younger 2 then split his share?
Not necessarily. First of all, if the 18 year old is still in high school, he could continue to receive benefits until he's 19. Or, if he's disabled, he could continue receiving benefits indefinitely.
Good day sir, I am a filipino citizen and my husband is receiving SSDI. We are planning to move back home to the Philippines to live there for good after i get my citizenship. We are also planning to adopt a child when we go home. My question is:
1) will the child receive dependents benefit even if she lives in the Philippines , never came to the USA and doesn’t have social security number.
2) will i receive any spousal benefit after my husband dies?? I am 42 yrs old now and have only worked for 2 yrs in the USA and we plan to go home next year
