<<<The people who die before receiving a nickel get nothing.>>>

"Well, they don't because they are dead. However, surviving spouses and minor children get survivors' benefits."

Lots of people die without either surviving spouses or minor children.

I believe that monir childen receive benefits to at least age 18 (unless maybe they maay before 18 or otherwise gain independent status); I am not about 18-21 or post-secondary educatin expenses.
