Will I still recieve my benefits?

Right now I am 17 years old and receiving survivors benefits. Every month on the third I recieve my benefits. My birthday is February 28th. Since I turn 18 at the end of the month, and my benefits come on the third, will I still receive the benefits for February?

I suspect you'll receive a benefit for February, but please check with the SSA for confirmation.

Please note the following on benefits for children age 18 and older :


Three months before your child's 18th birthday, we will send you a notice that benefits will end at age 18 unless your child is a full-time student at a secondary ( or elementary) school. If your child is younger than 19 and still attending a secondary or elementary school, he or she must notify us by completing a statement of attendance that has been certified by a school official. The benefits then will usually continue until he or she graduates, or until two months after reaching age 19, whichever comes first.
