Social Security Benefit for Adopted Grandson
I've had legal custody of my grandson for the last 10 years. I recently file for retirement social security and the agent that took my claim said I could also get benefits for my grandson if he were adopted until he was 18 years old. Can you tell me how much he'd get ? I'm drawing $1769. a month a SS representative said he could get from $900 - $1300. a month. Is that possible?

The SS representative is the best person to ask about amounts.
