    Hang on - the parent is dead?

    The deceased parent won't be receiving any social security...

    Would you like to clarify your question?

    SS only pays for the disabled and the retired. They draw the line at the deceased. It is possible for a child of a deceased parent to qualify for benefits.

    You may believe that you understood what you think I said. I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    The child may receive benefits from ssa from the deceased parent if the child is still a minor or up to age 23 if attending college. However the deceased parent doesn't receive benefits.

    Yes dear, we know this (or rather, dependent benefits)

    OP needs to clarify the question.

    Understand?
