Receiving Social Security Survivor's Benefits?

I had been receiving survivor benefits for my 2 children since their father passed away in June 2014. Our son turned 18 in November, which is when he started to receive his own check. My question is, once he graduates high school this June and will no longer receive his benefit, will our other child (who is still a minor and for whom I receive the check) receive the full amount of their father's benefit (both children's amount together), or will she still only get the amount she has been receiving?

Only a Social Security Administration office can answer your question.

You will need to pay a visit to your SS office to get the answers you need.

Also, just because a child turns 18 is no real reason for them to receive the benefit check in their name. The benefit check is to provide shelter, food and other needs of the child and should go to the person who provides those things.

I hope your son is using the money to take care of himself until he finishes school.
