Anyone out there know anything about Social Security?
SO, without going into a long discussion.....
My wifes sister was murdered by her husband a little over a year ago. We took their then 8-month old child in with us, and since then have not been able to get any help for him. (aside from WIC, and Medicaid, since he is considered a family of 1, unless we adopt).
Anyway, we asked the SS about survivor benefits, but they said the mom didn't work enough to have any. And I am also wondering, with the father now in prison, does that qualify the child for anything? I heard they will tell you that sometimes, even if you qualify. But that is hearsay.
I'm not looking for any handouts or anything like that, but I am recently unemployed, and things are getting tight. I know if we had let her child go to the state in the first place, they would be paying for his upkeep, so why can't we get anything to help him?
I know I could get a SS lawyer, but that seems like a last resort. Anyone have any experience like this, and If so I can explain the situation a little more then.
