How long do Social Security survivor benefits last?

Social Security benefits for surviving spouses and surviving divorced spouses are payable for life. Generally, benefits for surviving children are payable to age 18. Children’s benefits can continue to age 19 if the child is a full-time student in secondary education or with no age limit if the child became disabled prior to age 22.
