My daughter receives SS survivor benefits after her fathers passing. I am remarried and my husband plans to adopt her. Will this affect her benefits?
You have to ask Social Security but my guess is Yes, she will lose benefits that are provided through her late father since he will no longer be her father.
I have to say this is an area of law that I am not totally in sync with and that is why you ask social security. If they say she keeps her benefits, be sure to have them put it in writing and if they refuse, you need to write them a letter which essentially says you talked to (name the person) who told you XXX and you just verifying that statement.
Adoption of a child already entitled to Social Security survivors benefits does not end his or her benefits.
