How hard is it to emancipate her at age 16 in NJ? And if she isnt in school is she still able to collect her dads death benefits from social security?
Expert:  Samuel II replied 7 years ago.



the laws require that a minor seeking emancipation is able to financially support herself, live independently by showing they have employment, health benefits, etc


and yes she is still entitled to the Dad's benefits.
