Howard Kossover: Adoption does not end Social Security survivor benefits for children

Email

Q: My young children receive Social Security survivors benefits because their father died several years ago. I will remarry in a few months. Will the children lose their survivors benefits if my new husband adopts them?

A: Adoption of a child already entitled to Social Security survivors benefits does not end his or her benefits.
