What happens to child support if non-custodial parent dies?

Question Details:

I am a single mom with an 18 year-old daughter who still lives with me. We live in New York State. My ex-husband is quite ill and currently on life-support. He may not survive. What will happen with respect to child support? He is re-married and I am wondering if there are any obligations on his part? Will she get his social security benefits or do they go to his wife? To my knowledge, he has no will.
