Social Security Death Attorney Case
 
When someone who has worked and paid into Social Security dies, survivor benefits can be paid to certain family members. These include widows, widowers (and divorced widows and widowers), children, and dependent parents. Typically in a Social Security death attorney case the surviving family members must submit documents needed in making a claim such as death certificate, report of death if the cause of death is work related and other important documents. A Social Security death attorney case provides that when you die, certain members of your family may be eligible for survivor’s benefits if you worked, paid Social Security taxes, and earned enough credits. You can earn a maximum of four credits each year. The number of credits you need depends on your age when you die. The younger a person is in a Social Security death attorney case, the fewer credits are needed to be eligible for survivors benefits but nobody needs more than forty credits (ten years of work) to be eligible for any Social Security benefits.

Sadly enough, in a Social Security death attorney case where a claimant with a pending case dies before a decision is made by a disability examiner or an administrative judge, a deceased claimant’s surviving family may continue to pursue the claim for the benefit of the claimant’s estate.

The Social Security Death Case Index is a huge database containing vital information for more than 64 million people (primarily Americans) whose death case were reported to the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA).

In a Social Security death attorney case where no young children are eligible for Social Security survivor benefits, the widow of a deceased insured worker can receive, at normal retirement age, a monthly benefit equal to one hundred percent of the deceased worker's earnings. A reduced widow's benefit can be claimed as early as age sixty or age 50 if the widow is disabled. The widow's benefit may also be reduced in a Social Security death attorney case if the deceased worker had claimed retirement benefits before his normal retirement age and was receiving a reduced benefit at the time of death.

The Social Security Death Case Record includes most deceased individuals who died having owned a Social Security number. It also lists the deceased's name, their Social Security number (SSN), date of birth, date of death, state where the SSN was issued, ZIP code of the last residence, and ZIP code of where the death benefit was sent.

However, in a Social Security death attorney case where young surviving children are present, the widow of a deceased insured worker can receive, at any age, seventy-five percent of the deceased worker's earnings as long as she is caring for the deceased worker's child and that child is either under age 16 or incessantly disabled since before age twenty-two.

Men are technically eligible to receive exactly the same benefits as women in a Social Security death attorney case, but few men actually receive spouse's or widower's benefits because of Social Security's dual-entitlement rules. These rules prevent duplication of benefits when a person is eligible for more than one type of Social Security benefit.

When you're searching the Social Security Death Case Report , you may notice codes, such as VA, HC, PE, and 72, listed in the Last Residence column. These source codes are used by the SSA to indicate the source of the Death Case Report.
