In vitro fertilization can produce a child long after the father is dead. Attorney David Allen discusses a case in which the parents sought Social Security survivor benefits for children who were born 18 months after the father died from cancer. The federal district trial court denied benefits saying that the Florida law defining heirs excluded people born later than nine months after the death of the father. The third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the children could receive Social Security survivor benefits because their father was the biological father, even though he died 18 months before the children were born. The US Supreme Court finally resolved the case.
