My daughter gets a social security survivors check because

This answer was rated:

My daughter gets a social security survivors check because her dad who she never knew died when she was 11 years old. When she was 2, I married a man that has taken the role as her father, and I don't want her to know otherwise until she turns 18.
Anyway, when she was 12 years old my husband broke his back on the job, and now receives ssi disability.
Does his ssi check interfere in any way with the check she gets?

Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service,



Although your present husband is probably the only father your daughter has ever known, he is still only her stepfather and, therefore, any benefits which your husband receives will not interfere, or jeopardize your daughter's receiving Social Security Survivor's benefits from her biological father's death,
