    Death benefits
    My daughters biological dad passed when she was 2... so I immediately started collecting Social security survivors benefits.. 3 years later my new husband wanted to adopt her and social security said it was OK she could still collect the survivors benefits... we divorced after a few years snd eventually he abandoned her and didn't have contact with her the last 3 years but now todsy he has died I find out and he was a 100 percent disabled veteran. Does anyone know if she has rights to any of the benefits from the VA or social security ? I am not intending to try to be greedy I am just curious

    If he qualified and was collecting SSDI then she may have been entitled prior to his death to part of the benefit. Depending on his work record his SSI may or may not come into play. That would be something to ask Social Security Admin about and have all the needed paperwork with you if you do apply.
