Who gets the social security money once a parent dies?
Someone has to pay for the funeral and that person will get a death certificate to show Social Security. That person also takes the parent's S.S. Card with them. Then, Social Security will give them a check. It will be a lump sum payment and might only be a few hundred dollars. If the wife or husband is still alive they get the money otherwise the child who goes to the S.S. gets it.

Upom Your Demise They Stop Payments. If That's Not Bad Enough If You Expire Before a Check Is Cut In Your Name It Is To Be Returned. I Hope This Helps, God Bless
If a parent receives Social Security Disability (SSDI) or retirement benefits, his or her minor children can also receive a monthly benefit until age 18, or age 19 if the chil…d is still in elementary or high school. Extended benefits terminate at the end of the school year, or two months after the child's 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. Social Security is a federal program; the rules are the same regardless of your state of residence. There are different rules for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a form of welfare for disabled people and those over 65 who have little other income and few assets. People frequently confuse SSDI and SSI. SSI rules and payments vary somewhat by state.
Widows are eligible to begin drawing retirement benefits on their late husband's earnings record at age 60 if they have not remarried before that time. Disabled widows are eli…gible at 50. A widow may draw survivors' benefits at any age if she is raising the decedent's dependent minor children who are under age 16. The children should also qualify for separate survivor benefits. Please call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 to speak with a representative about your specific situation.
If a friend needs to move out with his sis Dad doesn't know how to spend money very well and son is 14 but his parent gets Social Security money for him will his sister get it if he lives with her?

You can start receiving retirement benefits at age 62. However, you will get substantially more if you wait until you are older to get your first check. The amount you will re…ceive at different ages depends on when you were born, as well as how much you paid in through the years.
Not from SSI, only SSDI.
When i was 12 my dad died i recently heard that once i turn 18 ill periodically receive money each month do to social security is this true?
No u get money until ur 18 after 18 they dont give u money my mom died when i was 5
Call the social security office and tell them. They may have forms for you fill out.
No one will get it. Your parents paid for other people's social security. Just as younger people pay for your parents. Your parents do not have a balance for their social secu…rity. The government pays eligible people a certain amount until they die.
The social security benefits belong to the minor. The amounts are to be used for the minors benefit. A representative payee must apply the payments for the use and benefit of …the entitled individual. Social Security and/or SSI funds are properly used if they are: A. Spent for the beneficiary's current and reasonably foreseeable needs or B. Saved or invested for the beneficiary, after current needs have been met.
Every one that starts receiving the social security benefits before reaching Normal Retirement Age (FRA) receives the reduced benefit amounts. Survivors and beneficiaries also… receive reduced amounts. Go to the SSA.gov website and use the search box for more information.
Unfortunately, this is the same thing and you cannot.
In a case such as this, I suggest that the obligee file an estate claim for the unpaid support.
You can start to receive Social Security at 62. You get a large pension if you wait until you are older to start collecting monthly checks.
There is a child benefit check until the child reaches age 18.
No one gets it the government takes all your money back.
You can't receive Social Security retirement benefits and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits at the same time. SSDI provides monthly benefits to people who a…re under full retirement age (age 65 or older) and who meet other requirements. Once you reach full retirement age, which is based on the year you were born, the Social Security Administration will automatically transfer your disability benefits to retirement benefits. Your monthly benefit amount will not change as a result of this transfer.
