My son collects survivor benefits which are split with his half brother who lives in another state. I was told by the social security rep that when his half-brother turned 18 he would stop receiving benefits and my son's portion of the benefits would increase.
Well my son's half brother turned 18 over a year ago and we have not seen an increase in benefits. I called social security to inquire about this but they said they couldn't release any information. Now I am confused.
Is my son entitled to increased benefits?
