In the United States, What are the Different Social Security Survivors Benefits?

0

Social Security survivors benefits vary with each individual situation. Generally, widows, divorced widows children, and dependent parents can get monetary benefits. The exact dollar amount of the benefit will depend on the income of the deceased and the age of the survivors. There are a variety of people who qualify for Social Security survivors benefits. If a widow has reached the age of 65 at the time of her spouse’s death, she is entitled to the full benefits, while there are reduced benefits for those age 60, or 50 if disabled. A widow can receive benefits at any age if she is caring for the deceased’s child under the age of 16. Unmarried children — sometimes even stepchildren — grandchildren or adopted children under 18 are also qualified for benefits as are disabled children of any age if they were disabled before the age of 22. The deceased’s parents can also qualify for Social Security survivors benefits if the deceased provided at least 50% of the parent’s support. Divorced
