    Post Emancipation And Social Security

    My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Florida

    I'm a widowed mother of three and my oldest son will be 16 in Aug. I have read the law pertaining to emancipation in FL but I'm not clear on if he would be entilted to the check I get for him until he's 18.

    That said, this is my question;

    If I petitioned for my soon-to-be 16 year old son to be emancipated and the judge agreed, would he then get the social security check that, at present, comes in my name for him?

    I would think not because it would defeat the purpose of being self-supporting.

    I would greatly appreciate any help.

    Thank You!

    If he is emancipated, no one gets the check.

    Thank you for your answer and while it is apprreciated, doesn't seem right or fair to me.

    How is it fair that no one will get his check when I still have two minor children that are entitled to those survior benifits as well?

    Thank you.

    You would still get survivor benefits for the other two.

    SS survivor's benfits end at age 18, or legal emancipation, whichever happens first.

    You really don't have too much to worry about, there is only a tiny handful of emancipation petitions that are granted every year in FL.

    My late brother's wife ran into this same situation when my eldest neice married at age 17, the SS check stopped, but she still recieved the younger childrens' benefits.
