My 15 year old son receives a survivors check from his father. My husband was just approved for SSSI, will this effect my sons check, because he is a dependent on my husbands check.

Hi,

No, but if your son qualifies as a stepchild or adopted child on your husband's record, he could receive whichever benefit is higher.
