If the Paternity is Proven Wrong, Can My Child Still Inherit?
The answer will depend on all the circumstances involved. For example, if the child received benefits by virtue of being a surviving child or next of kin, rather than being named specifically by name as a beneficiary, a finding that the child isn't related could cause benefits to terminate. We suggest you consult a local attorney who can review al lthe facts and documents involved.
