Customer Question

I am in the process of legally adopting my grand daughter that has been living with my husband and i for 90% of her life. My husband died July 2014 and we were told that the adoption has to be complete within a year of his death in order for us to receive benefits through the ssd my husband was receiving before his passing. Is this true that it is a year or is it 2 years?
