wHEN DOES A CHILD'S SOCIALSECURITY RUN OUT WHEN RECEIVING IT DUE TO A PARENT'S DEATH

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

A child will receive a survivor benefit until at least age 18. If they are still in high school full time when they reach age 18, the survivor benefit will continue either until age 19, of graduation from high school, whichever occurs first.

You may reply back to me using the Continue the Conversation or Reply to Expert link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

Please remember to rate my service to you when our communication is completed.

I wish you the best in 2013,

Doug

She has two options, in my opinion - move in with friend's family which I do not want to see or we would consider moving to her town until she completed high school. she will be 18 in November but school doesn't end until June. We are not as prosperous as the other grandfather but want to do what is best for her. I guess my question is : is the money hers or whoever supports her?

Good afternoon Norene,

The benefit is given to the caretaker of the child, for the support of the child
