Who May Qualify For Survivor Benefits?
In many cases, a surviving spouse and minor children can receive survivor benefits. However, since circumstances vary significantly between situations, we also handle claims involving other relations, such as a:
- Surviving former spouse
- Step grandchild
An adopted child may also qualify to receive survivor’s benefits. The age limit for benefits may not apply to children who have a disability.
