This answer was rated:

my 18 year old grandson gets suvivor benefits from his deseased father. how long can he collect these benafits?

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you tonight?

MyVirtualCPA :

Your grandson can draw the benefits until the age of 18, unless he's still in high school. At that point, he collects benefits until he is out of high school, but no later than age 19.

MyVirtualCPA :

So, if he's 18 and receiving benefits, his benefits will end when he is out of school.

Customer:

MyVirtualCPA :

High school.

MyVirtualCPA :

The equivalent of 12th grade

He will not get the benefits while attending college.
