Social Security Expert: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 11 months ago

If the father or her daughter have worked and have paid into Social Security, she can seek to apply for "dependent's benefits" for each of the children based upon both of their parents paying into the system and now being disabled. The benefits would continue until the children reach 18, unless the children are disabled and then they can continue indefinitely. So, if both or either parent has worked and paid into SS, she needs to contact the Social Security Administration about dependent benefits.

Also, she needs to contact social services in TN as well, they have programs available for these situations where she is caring for children that are not her children, but most are temporary or are renewed by the state legislature annually, so if the state cuts benefits those could be lost, unlike social security dependent benefits.
