Social Security Disability (SSD)
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a federal program that provides financial assistance to those who have a qualifying disability and are unable to work or maintain substantial employment.
SSD benefits may extend to eligible Surviving Family or Dependents, such as children or a spouse with a disability, following the death of a Legal Guardian who was receiving SSD benefits prior to their death.
Surviving spouses or children may be eligible for survivor benefits based on the deceased loved one's SSD record. Properly managing the application and documentation for these benefits is crucial to access the financial support owed.
