The Supreme Court on the Social Security Rights of Posthumously Conceived Children: | Joanna L. Grossman | Verdict | Legal Analysis and Commentary from Justia

The Supreme Court on the Social Security Rights of Posthumously Conceived Children: | Joanna L. Grossman | Verdict | Legal Analysis and Commentary from Justia:

So when is a child a child. "A “child” is an applicant who meets the definition of “child,” who is either a minor or was disabled before age 22, who is unmarried, and who was dependent on the insured at the time of the insured’s death." under SSA rules.  And I wondered if they were still considered married at the time of conception since the husband was already dead.

Absolutely fascinating case.  SCOTUS  " reversed the Third Circuit’s ruling and sided with the SSA.  Thus, the final outcome in this case was that Robert Capato cannot be deemed the legal father, for Social Security purposes, of the twins who were conceived with his sperm after his death."
