Hello: If you received another offer. It did not come from me and you do not have to pay it.

I will go ahead and answer your question anyway even if you do not have any money to pay.

The son can still receive benefits based on his father's earnings even if his father is now in prison. His mother can go to the local office of Social Security Administration to apply for him.

Best wishes,
