does she still get her checks when she attends college after her 18 birthday
Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 7 months ago.

No, once she is an adult (i.e. age 18) and no longer in high school, she is no longer an eligible dependent, unfortunately (unless disabled herself). If she were still in high school, she could continue up to 19. I understand the theory being that as an adult, we are technically able to be self supportive and work, even while going to college.

That said, do you have any other children that are younger than she? If so, their benefits may actually increase.
