Social Security Survivor Benefits

When a person who has paid into the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) system dies, the surviving spouse and children of minor age (under 21) are eligible to receive survivor benefits. A minor-aged child receives 75 percent of the worker’s benefit amount. The amount paid to the surviving spouse depends upon the age of the spouse at the time of the worker’s death. For example, a widow(er), of retirement age 65 or older generally receives 100 percent of the worker’s basic benefit amount. At working age 60 or under, however, the surviving spouse will receive between 70 and 99 percent.

Social Security Applications and Denials

The application process for receiving Social Security survivor benefits is often frustrating because of the nature of the Social Security application process. At a time when the family is grieving over the loss of a loved one, it is difficult to gather the appropriate records and information required by the Social Security Administration. Many legitimate initial claims are denied because of an oversight on a small technical matter.
