Qualifying for Social Security Survivor's Benefits

My son's father passed away before my son was born. Can my son still receive survivor benefits even if his father did not sign his birth certificate?

Check with your local Social Security Office. They are the ones that would know.

Only the social security office can tell you. If we say no will you just accept that and not apply even if we are wrong? If we say yes you still have to apply to get it so just apply.

The readers are right, check with you Social Security Ofc. The phone # is on the phone book in the blue pages, or you can get the 800 # online. Most questions can be answered over the phone; in some cases, you can apply over the phone.
