Child Benefits

Can I Apply For And Suspend My Benefits In Order To Permit My Daughter To Receive Benefits?

Category: 

Hello Larry, Thank you in advance for your advise. I just turned 62 and heard of SS payments for my 14 year old daughter. I do not plan to retire until I am 68 years old. Can I apply for my SS benefits and then suspend them to allow my daughter to qualify for benefits? Does this reduce my monthly benefit when I retire at age 68. Are there any additional concerns I should consider? Thank you , Guy

Hi Guy,

Was The Answer I Got From Social Security Correct?

My wife, who is younger than 62, gets child benefits for her daughter, my step-daughter (age 14). I am older than 62, of course. We are getting separated. Social Security said, in response to my phone inquiry, that so long as I am continuing to support my step-daughter the benefits can continue, even though we are separated. The first question is: was the answer I got from Social Security correct? The second question is: what does "continue to support" mean in this circumstance.

Hi,

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?

Category: 

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?
