Please work directly with the SSA on this as we could not find a definitive answer for this.

There are indications that grandchildren can qualify for survivor benefits under certain circumstances. These circumstances are not clear, but apparently the grandchild must have begun living with the grandparent before age 18 and received at least one half of his or her support from the grandparent for the year before the month the grandparent became entitled to retirement or disability insurance benefits, or died.
