    Huh? You want to collect survivor benefits as a 28 year old adult? If that is your question...No. You can not.

    If you were a minor, yes, someone could collect social insecurity bennies upon your behalf.

    Alas, you are a 28 year old adult, sadly no social insecurity bennies for you.

    My condolences upon the demise of your father.

    Only if you were under age 18 (or up to age 19 and still in high school) would be eligible for SSA survivor's benefits. The link I provided takes you to a SSA publication that explains the basics of these benefits.

    He worked. You didn't. Why would you think you are entitled to any ssi benefits?

    No, you do not, since you are not a minor.

    It's that illness that makes you think you can get something you haven't earned for yourself.

    No. You do not. You DO, however, meet the eligibility to get off your butt and earn your own SS credits.

    Your father like virtually all of us paid a tax for SSA and Medicare. It wasn't a savings account.

    The money taken out for SSA isn't yours to draw from. You go get yourself a job and earn your own money. How long did you expect your daddy to support you anyway?
