You’ve Never Heard of and
Who is Eligible for Them
When: Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 11:00-12:00 P.T./2:00-3:00 E.T.
When most people hear about “Social Security benefits,” the first thought that comes to mind is income for older individuals who have retired from work. It’s true that the Social Security system provides a foundation of retirement income that permits older adults to live in dignity, with over 46 million retired workers receiving benefits each month.
However, the Social Security system is also the foundation of economic security for millions of family members of retired, disabled, or deceased workers. In addition to retirement benefits, Social Security offers disability insurance protection to workers and their spouse and children, as well as life insurance that pays monthly survivors benefits to dependents if the worker dies.
Join this training to learn more about the eligibility requirements for benefits for spouses and ex-spouses, children, and parents. About one American family in four receives income from Social Security benefits, and many more could receive this income if they knew they were eligible. These benefits offer an opportunity to provide more financial stability to eligible older adult households.
In this training:
· Participants will understand the eligibility requirements for Social Security benefits for spouses and ex-spouses of retired, disabled, or deceased workers.
· Participants will understand the eligibility requirements for Social Security benefits for children of retired, disabled, or deceased workers.
· Kate Lang, Justice in Aging
· John Whitelaw, Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. (DE)
