Receiving Social Security Survivor Benefits

My dad died October 4, 2010. I was 14. I have a brother. It's been 4 years and I haven't received a dime. I don't know what to do I couldn't finish my last year cause I didn't have money. My dad had disability cause he had one arm. I find it very unbelievable that I haven't received anything.

You did go file a claim when he died, correct?? If not, you have to file first.
The money does not go to the children, it goes to the care taker of the children. Who is the adult that is responsible for you? If it was approved, that would be where the money would be sent.
Call the SS office and talk to them.

You need to make an appointment with Social Security ASAP with all relevant documentation. You should be paid retroactively if you were qualified
