There are certain requirements that must be met in order to qualify for survivor benefits on behalf of your deceased spouse or loved one. The deceased individual had to have worked for a certain number of years, during which time he or she contributed to Social Security taxes.
Survivor benefits may be obtained as early as age 50 if the recipient has a disabling health condition that began within 7 years of the death of his or her spouse. Alternately, the surviving spouse may request benefits at any age if he or she is caring for the deceased person’s child, if the child is 16 years old or younger, or the child is disabled. The widow and family may also request Reduced Social Security Benefits if the spouse is at least 60 years old.
If you believe you are eligible for benefits through the Social Security Administration because of payments made by your late husband or wife we want to help. Our knowledgeable attorneys can review your case and determine what benefits you may qualify for.
