Hi, my name is ***** ***** my goal here is to provide you with the most complete and accurate answer possible.

Unfortunately, children may only collect survivor's benefits until they reach age 18, or 19 is they had not graduated from high school and are attending full-time. I have attached pdf publication from the Social Security Administration regarding survivor's benefits.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions. Thanks, Jonathan
