Fat posted a question in Entitlement - Veterans Compensation Benefits ClaimsI spoke with a mother whose son was adopted by his great grandfather at 90 years old. The great grandfather lived until 99 years old and became deceased in 2014. The mother filed paperwork for custody because the adoption process removed biological mother and father from the original birth certificate. The current birth certificate only list great grandfather as the adoptive father. In addition, to the child receiving SS benefits from great grandfathers work history, she also indicated he was a veteran at 100% disability rating upon death. I didn't ask but he sounded like a WWII veteran. In lieu of veteran being deceased in 2014, does the 10 year old child have benefits associated with the grandfather's military service? Education benefits? Survivor benefits? Health Insurance? Etc............
