Re: Benefits when Dad Dies and Baby is Three Years Old
Dependent benefits are for the dependents of the decedent, not the grandchildren of the decendant.
And no, you may not inquire into the Social Security account of someone else. Whether or not she collected any money whatsoever isn't even any of your business.
If you wanted babies all to yourself, you should have created them by yourself. Until you do that, children have the right to BOTH parents, especially since you found them suitable to procreate with.
