My friend has 3 children. After the 3rd child was born, the mother passed away. The children started receiving SSI benefits. He is about to get remarried and she wants to adopt the children. Will the children still receive SSI if she adopts them?

The only way anybody gets SSI benefits is if they are disabled. These kids might be getting survivor's benefits. Your friend should talk to the local Social Security Office.
