My mom recently died. I wanted to know if my boys would be allowed to get her SSI

Q) My mom recently died and I wanted to know if my boys would be allowed to get her SSI she was in the process of getting paperwork together to adopt them they are 8.

A) IF the adoption process was complete before she died the adopted kids could get her social security benefits.

According to Social Security administration – Your child can get benefits if they’re your biological child, adopted child, or dependent stepchild. (Sometimes, your child could also be eligible for benefits on their grandparents’ earnings.) To get benefits, a child must have:
• A parent who’s disabled or retired and entitled to Social Security benefits; or
• A parent who died after having worked
long enough in a job where they paid Social
Security taxes.
The child must also be:
• Unmarried;
• Younger than age 18;
• 18-19 years old and a full-time student (no
higher than grade 12); or
• 18 or older and disabled. (The disability must
have started before age 22.)
What you’ll need when you apply for child’s benefits:
When you apply for benefits for your child, you’ll need the child’s birth certificate and the parent’s and child’s Social Security numbers. Depending on the type of benefit involved, other documents may be required. For example, if you’re applying for survivors benefits for the child, you’ll need to furnish proof of the parent’s death. If you’re applying for benefits for a disabled child, you’ll need to furnish medical evidence to prove the child’s disability. The Social Security representative who sees you will tell you what other documents you’ll need. https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10085.pdf
