My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.

Unfortunately a child can only collect a survivor benefit at the death of a parent and doesn't qualify for a benefit because the child's parent is in prison.

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
