Receiving Social Security Survivor's Benefits

My father died 3 years ago of cancer at a young age. Am I able to get his Social Security benefits? I am a single mom of two and I am having a hard time making ends meet. This would help me greatly.

Survivor's benefits are for spouses and children under the age of 18. If you are 16 and unmarried, you may be able to draw. Check with your local office.

I'm not sure about this, but being you are an adult I honestly don't see how you would qualify for survivor's benefits from your late Dad's Social Security. It would be different if you had a spouse and he had died. Call your local Social Security Office and make an appointment to talk to them. You aren't the only one having a hard time making ends meet, there are a lot of people in that situation.

No, you would have had to have been married to the kid's father and if he passed away, you and the children would receive social security.

Hi - you should be checking with your local churches and your local Human Resources for benefits that are available (other than the ones you probably already receive). There are many benefits available for children.
