Filing for Disabled Widower Benefits
The loss of a spouse would be almost too much to bear for anyone; however, when you depended on your spouse for income, you may find yourself without the means to support yourself if you live with a disability. In order to protect people who find themselves in this position, the Social Security Administration (SSA) offers critical Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to help account for the loss of income. Unfortunately, the application process for these benefits can be exceedingly complex for applicants. With that in mind, many people turn to experienced SSDI attorneys who can help them work their way through the process.
Requirements for Disabled Widower Benefits
In order to be eligible for disabled widower benefits, the Social Security Administration will need to ascertain whether you meet the following requirements:
- You must be at least 50 years old
- You must have a qualifying disability
- You must have been married for 10 years
- Your spouse must have been eligible to collect SSD benefits
