There are two disability programs. If your son was on SSD, and your grandson is under age 18, he is entitled to survivor benefits. But those benefits only continue until age18. There are no exceptions. If your grandson is under age 18, your daughter in law needs to go to any SSA office with a copy of his birth's certificate and reapply. Note, she must bring the birth certificate to show proof of age.
