Was your son receiving child support from his Dad and how old is your son? To get the best information call your local Social Security Office. They will know the answers.

The basic question is how old is your son? Social security can give you all the answers if you go in person with all your documentation.

Son's birth certificate and social security number.

It depends on his age. Here's what Social Security has to say:

Your unmarried children who are under 18 (up to age 19 if attending elementary or secondary school full time) can be eligible to receive Social Security benefits when you die.

And your child can get benefits at any age if he or she was disabled before age 22 and remains disabled.

Besides your natural children, your stepchildren, grandchildren, step grandchildren or adopted children may receive benefits under certain circumstances.
