My husband was recieving SSDI when he passed, so I am eligible for survivor benefits from SSDI. I recived a letter saying that I will recieve a specific amount and then my 20 month old son will recieve a certain amount. I am wondering if the amount my son is recieving is the rate for one child or for "children" in general. I am pregnant with our 2nd child and don't know if I have to file another claim for him as well...or if the amount my 20month old recieves already covers "all my children."
Has anyone else recieved SSDI survivor beenfits for multiple children? Has anyone had to file for a child that was born after your husband's death?
