Social Security Benefits For Widows And Widowers

Most people are not aware of the fact that a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) policy often contains provisions for providing benefits to a disabled spouse or child. In the case of a widow or widower, disability benefits are available when the following conditions are met:

  • The deceased spouse was covered by an SSDI policy at the time of his or her death
  • The individual claiming benefits is more than 50 years old
  • The disability occurred within seven years of your spouse's death
