Social Security Survivor Benefits?

I received a letter saying that when my son turns 16, my benefits will be cut off. I want to know if that is true?

I have heard of some minors that do lose their Survivor's Benefits at age 16. I'm sure the SS Office knows what they are talking about. That is providing you are talking about some type of SS benefits or if you are talking about something else. But I am sure whoever you got the letter from knows what they are talking about. Your question wasn't real clear in that you didn't say what kind of benefits you have been receiving. I have a hunch none of us on this site know the correct answer. Each case is different, the letter should have explained it to you and if not call the office and talk to them about it.

You will have to pay a visit to your local Social Security office to find the correct answer as no one here knows all the circumstances and almost every case is a little different.

If your letter was from the SS administration then most likely it is true. Is your son still in school?

Gather your information (SS numbers, the new letter, and the original letter stating you would receive benefits, if you still have it) and visit the SS office to put your mind at rest - either good or "bad" - you need to know.
