getting benefits from a deseased mother.

My granddaughters mother was killed over this summer, after which we found out that she is our granddaughter. Her father works, is newly married with one child and another on the way.

Suze Orman's Advice to Delay Social Security Benefits Until Age 70 is Too Broad
