Social Security Survivor Retirement Benefit Plan

Social Security is more than a retirement benefit program. Although it is true that most of the people receiving Social Security receive retirement benefits, many others get Social Security because they are disabled, a spouse of child of a worker who died; a spouse or child of someone who gets Social Security or a dependent parent of a worker who died. The Social Security Survivor Retirement Benefit Plan is an important part of any post retirement estate plan. Social Security Survivor Retirement Benefit Plan is designed to provide an annuity to a surviving spouse of a retired member of the Social Security.
