The Social Security Administration (SSA) makes disability benefits available to those who may not otherwise be currently eligible to receive them. Widows and widowers of spouses who were insured under Social Security who are at least 50 years old can collect Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits based on their wife’s or husband’s account. If that person becomes totally disabled within seven years of his or her spouse’s death, he or she can collect SSD benefits.This can help stay-at-home wives and other spouses who may not have a history of contributions to Social Security on which to base their own claim for disability benefits. Children under 18 can also receive survivor benefits.

A skilled and experienced attorney can help you understand what benefits are available to you as well as help you effectively navigate the challenging application process for SSD benefits.
