Sheriff Richardson indicated Social Security QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Q. I .get social security for my little boy because his father is deceased. Would the payments stop if my present husband adopts him? A. No. Adoption by a stepparent, grandparent, aunt or. uncle is not cause for ending a child's benefits. Q. Does a person who's working 'get retirement benefits for the whole year he becomes 72? A. He may receive payments for the month he is 72 and thereafter. He would be eligible for payments before that month only if his yearly earnings were $1200 or less, or if he neither earned over $100 a month wages nor rendered ^substantial services in self-employment. Q. If I get disability payments, does that mean I won't be allowed to work again? A. No. In fact, the law encourages rehabilitation of disabled beneficiaries by providing benefits during a trial work period.
