Who will receive my Orlando Social Security insurance when I die?

There’s a good chance you help to take care of someone, perhaps a spouse, child, grandchild, or some other relative. In fact, that person may depend on you financially. If you receive Orlando Social Security insurance, you likely use it to help care for the person. If you’re worried about how your loved one will survive when you pass away, it may help to know that your Social Security could still be useful.

Your Spouse

Your spouse may be entitled to your Social Security benefits if he or she is age 60 or older, or 50 or older if disabled. Your spouse could also be eligible if he or she is caring for your child who is under the age of 16 or who is disabled. A surviving divorced spouse may also be eligible.

Your Children

Unmarried children who are under the age of 18, or those are between the ages of 18 and 19 and enrolled full-time in a secondary school, could be eligible to receive your benefits. Additionally, if the child is older than 18 and became disabled before the age of 22, he could get your Social Security.

Other Dependents

In some cases, step-children, grandchildren, step-grandchildren, and adopted children are entitled to receive Social Security benefits after you pass away. Additionally, parents over the age of 62 who were dependent on the deceased for at least half of their income could be eligible to receive the help, as well.
