Do not use these instructions to terminate a child’s benefits based on a change in
the parent-child relationship under State law after initial entitlement or re-entitlement.
We use these determinations only to establish the child’s initial entitlement or reentitlement to benefits.
Adoption by someone other than the NH, the termination of a NH’s parental rights,
and a child’s loss of inheritance rights do not terminate the child’s entitlement to child’s benefits.
For post-entitlement events that may terminate a child’s entitlement to benefits,
see RS 00203.035.
