Social Security Information

Below, we have provided some answers to common questions about Social Security, including benefits and eligibility requirements. We hope that you find this information helpful. For additional information, you may visit the Social Security website at www.ssa.gov.

The following are points regarding Social Security so that benefits may be filed properly and payments can be made promptly:

  • Eligibility
    • The deceased worker must have credit for work covered by Social Security, ranging from 1.5 to 10 years depending on his or her age at death.
  •  
  • Who May Receive Monthly Benefits?
    • - ‚ÄčA widow or widower age 60 or older (50 if disabled), or at any age if caring for an entitled child who is under 16 or disabled.
      • - A divorced widow or widower age 60 or older (50 if disabled) if the marriage lasted 10 years, or if caring for an entitled child who is under 16 or disabled
      • - Children who where disable before reaching 22, as long as they remained disabled
      • - Dependent parent or parents 62 or older
      •  
  • Lump-Sum Death Payment
    • A one-time payment of $255 is paid in addition to the monthly cash benefits described above. The lump-sum death payment (LSDP) is paid in the following priority order:
      • A surviving spouse who lived in the same household as the deceased person at the time of death
      • A surviving spouse eligible for or entitled to benefits for the month of death
      • A child or children eligible for or entitled to benefits for the month of death
      •  
  • Applying for Benefits
    You must apply in order to receive benefits. You may apply at any Social Security office, or if you wish, you may apply by telephone. Simply dial the toll-free number 1-800-772-1213 and the operator will schedule an appointment for you or arrange for the local Social Security office to take your claim by telephone.
