Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes and ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
A child can receive a parent's SS benefits in very limited circumstances. If you are a minor, then you would be eligible until you legally become an adult over the age of 18. Otherwise, if you are already an adult, you would have to have been declared permanently disabled before the age of 22 and remain disabled.
But if you don't fall into one of those two categories, then unfortunately you would not be eligible to receive SS benefits on father's account.
