Survivor Benefits

My husband and I were together 12 years and have a 10 year old daughter. We were engaged to be married Thanksgiving 2014. Unfortunately in Feb. 2014, he was diagnoised with stage 4 kidney cancer.


We got married 8/29. He passed 9/18. Do I qualify for mother of child or care of child benefits? Is there a time limit for marriage for "mother benefits". Yes, my husband and daughter were recieving benefits before he passed.

Please help.

Only social security can answer those questions. You need to call them and schedule an appointment. You need to take his death certificate, your marriage license, your daughters birth certificate, and everyone's social security numbers to your appointment.

Since you were not legally married, it is unclear whether Social Security will recognize this living arrangement as a marriage. Make an appointment with them.
