Social Secuirty - If a person that has worked their whole life dies, what other person can collect?

Disabled sibling that is dependent on them?

Parent that is dependent on them?

There are no other relatives (no kids or ex-spouse).

Looks like dependent parent, yes if the parent is 62+ and relied on the child for at least half their support.

Disabled adult child, would be a yes, but probably not a sibling unless the decedent had adopted them before dying.

The dependent parent, meanwhile, gets a percentage of what the decedent would have gotten. 82.5% if one dependent parent, or 75% to each if two, subject of course to the family maximum which could come into play if the dependent parent is also collecting benefits based on their own earnings record.
