    died. They go to the mother, just like a child support check would. That doesn't mean that Ryan didn't benefit from him, although I wouldn't put it past him to lie and say he wouldn't choose to receive them if he had the choice.

      mocking him for seeming to brag over what he had no bragging rights to

      With his father’s passing, young Paul collected Social Security benefits until age 18, which he put away for college.

      Though I see it wasn't a direct quote... but still I mock. He put it away for college?  If it was saved for college it is credit to his mother, not to him.

      Still it would only really be an issue if his spouse had died leaving minor children and he had taken the social security on their behalf, when it was his choice. Even then it would be an issue mostly if he is trying to change survivors benefits. He might be when he gets his cold hands on social security plan. Reagan cut off the benefits surviving kids got through college.
