When are benefits paid to a child who is not attending school?

Excerpted from "Social Security Handbook". See the up-to-date, official Social Security Handbook at ssa.gov.

345. When are benefits paid to a child who is not attending school?

Child's insurance benefits may be paid to a child as a full-time student for a period of four calendar months or less in which the child does not attend school if:

  1. The child was in full-time attendance immediately before the four-month period;

  2. The child has established an intent to continue full-time or actually does attend full-time after the end of the four-month period; and

  3. The period of nonattendance is not due to the child's expulsion or suspension from school.

Before Freezing Credit, Consider Opening Social Security Online Account

A report states that, in order to establish an online Social Security account at ssa.gov, the Social Security Administration must have access to your credit report to verify your identification.

Thus, before freezing your credit (to mitigate the risk of recent hacks), consider setting up an account at ssa.gov first.
