Question for the Money Doctors

Question submitted on Oct 30, 2012.

Question

My mom''s mom died when my mom was 12 years old. My mom''s dad never tried to get social security for my mom and her two brothers. Are they still eligible to recieve that money that is owed to them even though it was over 30 years ago?

Answer

Although the Social Security Act defines general statute of limitations rules, this is an a typical question for which you would be best served by contacting the Social Security Administration directly at 800-772-1213. I hope that this helps.
