What are survivor benefits?

If there is one thing in the world that I wish nobody had to endure, it would be the loss of a loved one. Having to cope with this loss can be emotionally and financially overwhelming.

What does this have to do with Social Security Disability?  Well I was reading on the Social Security website that under certain circumstances you could receive your loved ones benefits if they worked long enough to qualify for Social Security benefits themselves.

This, by no means, makes the loss any better or easier. However, being able to receive these financial benefits can ease the stress that losing your loved one can create.

Who can get these benefits?  This might include the widow or widower, the deceased’s minor or disabled child, and in some cases, the surviving divorced spouse can be eligible to receive survivor’s benefits.

If there are any questions on if you qualify for this type of benefits or any questions regarding Social Security Disability, please do not hesitate to call us at 877-526-3457 or visit our web page at www.jandils.com.
