Widow Benefits

Assisting You With Your Application For Widow Benefits

Widow Benefits - Frustrated Woman In Wheelchair Reading LetterWidows and widowers are often eligible for survivor benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA says there are around 5 million people who are currently receiving such benefits, which are based on the earnings record of the deceased spouse. If you are a widow, widower or surviving divorced spouse, you may also be able to obtain benefits.

At SSD Solutions, I provide non-attorney representation to clients throughout the Orlando, Florida, area who want to obtain benefits as quickly as possible. While there are never any guarantees about the approval of an application with the SSA, I have the necessary experience to ensure that your application contains all that information necessary to meet the requirements of the SSA.

Widow Benefits

A widow or widower can obtain full benefits once he or she reaches full retirement age, or request reduced benefits as early as age 60. If you are disabled and you want to obtain benefits earlier, you maybe be able to get benefits at age 50 or later, depending on the circumstances. Even if you are remarried – as long as you did so after age 60 (50 if you are disabled) – you may also be able to obtain benefits.

Unlike SSI or SSD applications, you cannot apply for widow benefits online. You have to contact the SSA directly by phone or go into an office to apply.

Presenting The Best Possible Application

The SSA has a particular way of doing things, a way which can prove frustrating to applicants who are unfamiliar with it. I can explain exactly what information you will need, and can gather that information into an application that will put your best foot forward to the SSA.
