Thank you for your Social Security question.
Many years ago, children of a deceased parent could qualify for benefits for college. I personally was one of those children.
However, more than 20 years ago, Congress realized that they were sending too many children to college.
As a result, the children's benefit now stops at the LATER of completion of high school or their 18th birthday.
So, unless your children have not yet reached 18, there is no SS benefit.
So, I am sorry, but Social Security does not provide any benefit for education past high school.
too bad,their Dad worked 3 jobs to make ends meet. we'll continue to struggle,but the Lord will see us thru,thank you.
