    Default How Many Work Credits are Required for a Child to Receive Survivor Benefits

    My daughter is three and her father has just passed. He was 22. I am wondering how many work credits are needed at age 22 for your child to receive survivor benefits. TIA!

    Default Re: How Many Work Credits for Child to Receive Survivor Benefits

    It's one year for each year between 21 and death (to a maximum of 40). So he needed only one, possibly two quarters for her to have benefits. Those could be earned at any time in his life (not just after 21).
