Widows / Survivor Claims in Dallas
Widows and widowers may qualify for benefits that their spouse qualified
for, or even receive higher benefits from a spouse's record than from
one's own. Surviving children may also qualify for Social Security
benefits based on their own disabilities.
If you are a surviving widow(er) of a spouse who received
Social Security Disability insurance, you may qualify for Social Security survivor benefits based
on what they earned. To qualify for these, you and your spouse must have
been married for at least 9 months. You may qualify for full survivor
benefits if you are 65 years old; you can qualify for partial benefits
starting at 60 years old. You may qualify for benefits starting at 50
years old if you are disabled, from before your spouse died or within
7 years of your spouse's death. If you are divorced, you must have
been married for at least 10 years before the separation, and you cannot
have remarried before turning 60 (or before 50, if you are disabled) to
qualify for survivor benefits. You also must not qualify for the same
or even better benefits from anyone else's record if you are to qualify
as a divorced survivor.
Children may also qualify for Social Security survivor benefits. For children
under 18, it must be demonstrated that they are gravely disabled and that
their parents have low enough income to qualify for Supplemental Security
Income. An adult child might qualify for SSD benefits according to yours
or the deceased's salary, as benefits take into account how much was
paid into the system.
