Social Security Survivor Benefits

Our attorneys help people resolve issues related to survivor’s benefits. Issues that make survivor benefits more complicated, for example, include issues related to the age and disability of a surviving spouse.  Our attorneys can help you untangle these matters so you can get the benefits you deserve.  At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our attorneys help clients who have questions about survivor benefits.

Social Security provides benefits to survivors of people covered by Social Security. Widows and widowers, unmarried children, children still in school and divorced spouses are the primary beneficiaries of this law. This benefit is more like insurance than the retirement income typically associated with Social Security.
