Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi from Just Answer. I'm PDtax, and can assist.
family survivor benefits are available for a surviving parent and children. If your child is under 16, you are eligible for a survivor benefit of 75% of a full widow's benefit. Your child is eligible for her own 75% benefit as well. The total family survivor benefit is limited to 150% of the deceased's full retirement benefit.
I hope that clarifies your benefits and the amount you collect, each and in total.
SSA offers a web page that covers the subject in more detail. The link is; https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou5.html
Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
