Time interval between the date benefits end under Social Security and the date these benefits resume. For example, survivor benefits are paid only as long as the parent (if less than age 60) cares for a child less than age 16. Once that child reaches age 16, the surviving parent must wait until age 60 before survivor benefits resume.
