If paternity was never established between child and bio-father... while bio-father was alive......and no child support was asked for by the mother or for that matter, ever received ...and one day bio-father dies...can mother then ask for a paternity test via surviving siblings to determine paternity...to then ask for SS benefits for that surviving child.
This is a very complicated question, and one which I regret I cannot answer. You need to speak to a family law attorney. Good luck.

You need to go to the Illinois DMV with her car registration and a death certificate and some evidence that you are her heir or executor and entitled to change registration. The last document can be satisfied with a simple affidavit in most states. Good luck.
