Social Security Survivor Benefits

I have two children that receive Social Security survivor benefits from their mom who passed. One is 14 and the other is 17. When the seventeen-year-old turns 18 and her benefits stop do those benefits get rolled over to the 14 year old's benefit as well?

Her benefits stop when she graduates high school or when she turns 19, if she is still attending high school at that time. Benefits do not roll over to another individual.

You say you have two children that receive SS benefits; does this mean you are their guardian? Do you have legal rights to ask your question at SSA?

I'm sure you already know that benefits for the 17 year old will end when she graduates from high school. That is usually around the 18th birthday but can actually continue until 2 months after the 19th birthday is she is still attending high school full time. Anyway, graduation is the ending date.

There is no roll over of any benefits as benefits are paid to each person individually but it is sometimes possible that a person's benefits could increase when another person is removed from the account.

Social Security calculates how much each child can receive (from the deceased's earnings) but amount changes as someone else is added to receive benefits.

You should pay a visit to the SSA and ask your question so you will know what to expect and when a change will take place. They will also tell you exactly when the last benefit will be paid to the 17 year old.
