My 19-year-old grandson is a full-time college student in another state. He will turn 20 in June. His father, my former son-in-law, sadly died last month at age 48. He was a full-time federal employee under the FERS system, so did pay into the Social Security system for the last 9 years on this current job as well as on other non-governmental jobs he held before this job. Someone told me they thought because my grandson was a full-time student that he would be eligible for Social Security child survivor benefits.
I want to marry my girlfriend however her children receive survivor benifits. It appears that if she gets remarried, her children will no longer be able to receive these benifits. Is that true? If so would we be able to have a domestic partnership or is there another union that won’t affect those benifits for the babies? We are both 40 years old.

not qualify because what he is receiving in benefits to around the same
amount I'm receiving. Which I didn't think sounded accurate and when I got
I have a client who has a handicapped child. That child is not at FRA yet,
and both the child and his mother will not have enough credits to qualify on

benefit before age 62?
