Receiving Social Security Survivor Benefits?

I am 19. I just lost my dad New Year's in a car crash. My parents had been divorced for 10/11 years. I am one of three children my dad had. He had two other twin boys that are 18. I'm a girl. I'm not enrolled in school because I have no income to pay for school. I'm not working. I'm unable to work because I take care of my grandma who had stroke 3 years ago. In just want to know if there are any benefits I can receive.

There is a toll free number for Social Security that you should call. Or phone your local Social Security office found in the phone book. I received Social Security benefits when I was your age because my father was receiving SS benefits. However, I was enrolled in college as a full-time student.

I encourage you to contact your local State Employment Office as they may be able to direct you to the correct office to apply for education or training opportunities. You will need to be trained to do something to earn a living for yourself and not be dependent on others for money your entire life.

I suggest you aim high. Colleges have scholarships for students who do not have the money to attend. I believe need is one of the criteria used to determine who receives a scholarship. Don't forget you can also receive a student loan to help you. My children also had part time jobs.

I have faith in you and believe you can go to school, work part time, and care for your grandmother. You have it inside of you to do this. It is up to you to dig down and do it.

Warm regards for you and your future,
Carol in PA
