During the qualifying period survivor benefits, my 17 yrView more social security questions
During the qualifying period for child survivor benefits, my 17 yr old, full time high school was denied survivor benefits because he had wages. He worked mid-April through the end of the qualifying period, making about $5,000. Was this denial because of wages justified? It seems like a summer job while he was still living at home with another year of school left should not disqualify him for survivor benefits. Thanks...jvb
