Baby Boomers - Don't Leave Money on the Table. Part IV: Survivors Benefits

Your death will have a devastating impact on your family in many ways. If you are the major breadwinner, your loved ones must deal with the loss of your income at a time when they are least able to cope. Understanding the Social Security survivor's benefits rules now is an important part of retirement planning and can make this transition less painful.  Most people are aware that when they die, their surviving spouse will be eligible for Social Security survivor's benefits. Few realize that their dependent and disabled children, their dependent parents, and their former spouses may be eligible for survivor's benefits. Some of these benefits are listed on your Social Security statement and your spouse's statement, which you can find at http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount.   Following is a more detailed explanation of the benefits that are available for your eligible dependents.
