Stepchildren and Social Security Survivor's Benefits?

My son age 15 at the time, was not living in the home with us at the time my husband, my son's step father passed away. My son lived with us for a year and a half, then went to live with his biological father for a year and a half, then came back to live with me after my husband passed away. Is my son, his step son, eligible for benefits if we supported him in that year and a half he was living with us?

To get the correct answer you are going to have to call your local Social Security Office. You might be on hold for awhile, but then on the other hand when I call my Social Security Office, if it will be longer than you want to wait, they have a recording that tells you the best times of the month and day to call.

Social Security office has all the correct answers. You generally only can obtain "generic" answers over the phone as they have no way to identify your true identity.

Try going to the SS office in person with all related SS numbers, ID, etc.
