Social Security: Caring For a Child

Information taken from Social Security Administration SSA Publication No. 05-10077 ICN 468300.

If you get benefits because you're caring for a child:

  • If you receive benefits because you're caring for a child who is younger than age 16 or disabled, you should notify us right away if the child is no longer in your care or changes address. Give us the name and address of the person with whom the child is living.
  • A temporary separation may not affect your benefits if you continue to exercise parental control over the child, but your benefits will stop if you no longer have responsibility for the child. If the child returns to your care, we can start sending benefits to you again.

If someone adopts a child who is receiving benefits:

  • When a child who is receiving benefits is adopted, let us know the child's new name, the date of the adoption decree, and the adopting parent's name and address. The adoption won't cause benefits to end.

If you become a parent after you begin to receive benefits:

  • If you become the parent of a child (including an adopted child) after you begin receiving benefits, let us know so we can decide whether the child is eligible for benefits.

Note:  Contact your local Social Security Administration Office for all the latest updates on benefits and filing requirements.

Call the Social Security Administration toll free at 1-800-772-1213 or at our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778 if you're deaf or hard of hearing.
