Survivor Benefits for Students

My grandson received benefits after his mother's passing. He is now 18 and graduated from high school at the end of May. Will he get final check in June? He is going to college full time in August. Also will benefits continue since he'll be a full time student?

I can answer this for you if you haven't had an answer by now. Benefits stop after a child graduates from high school. They no longer pay benefits for full time college students.

My nieces, both received checks, after their Dad passed away. Their checks stopped on their 18th birthday and both were still in high school. This was around 10 years ago, and things may have changed. But Im almost sure, they dont receive one for college. I know my nieces didnt.

I would contact Social Security directly to find the correct answer to this. It looks like people have experienced it differently.

Call your local Social Security Office and talk to them.

Barbara did you get an answer from Social Security Administration yet? I had the same question about a girl I know.
