Survivors Benefits Through SSDI

The Social Security laws recognize that a worker’s family may need financial support after the worker dies. Even if the surviving spouse has always worked, the loss of the deceased spouse’s income will almost surely be an economic blow to the family. Even if the deceased spouse wasn't working and was collecting disability payments, the loss of that income can be devastating to a family. Recognizing this family financial burden, Social Security provides for what are called survivors benefits to be paid to the spouse and children of an eligible worker who has died.
