Question

will my 15 year old benifits will stop if she gets pregnat?? she gets survival bebifit cause her dad passed away..

Answer

I assume you are talking about Survivors Benefits that she receives from the Social Security Administration.

Your 15 year old will continue to receive the Survivor Benefits until she is age 18 (or up to age 19 if she is still in high school). Under certain circumstances, benefits can also be paid to your grandchildren.

For more information, you can go to the Social Security website at www.ssa.gov and look up Publication No. 05-10084.

Or you can make an appointment with your local Social Security Office to better understand your situation.

You can call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.
