In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. How much of a social security benefit are you presently receiving?

2. Did your son provide at least 50% of your day to day living expenses?

3. How much of a social security benefit was your son receiving at the time of his death?
