Nutro'Bofic IVgigM Reduction Systems at 1987 Benefits Aren't Just For Retirement This question-answer feature is designed to provide answers to questins about the Social Security program. Q. My sister-in-law was killed in an auto accident about 6 months ago. She left three small children. The family was dependent on both salaries when suddenly there was only one. My brother tells me they are receiving a little over $800 a month from Social Security. This has been a great help to them. Does everyone have this kind of survivors protection under Social Security? A. They sure do, provided they have worked long enough in employment covered under the Social Security program. Under the survivors program, even if a worker did not work long enough to be fully insured, benefits may be paid to his or her children and their mother or father if the worker had credit for l'/a years of work in the 3 years before death. You are not paying Social Security taxes for just a retirement program. It provides benefits to: 1) you and your family should you become disabled; 2) your eligible survivors should you die; and 3) you and your eligible family members when you retire. Q. My wife recently died. 1 know I'm not entitled to a monthly Social Security survivors benefit because of my earnings and age, but am I entitled to anything right now? A. A lump-sum death payment of $255 may be made on your wife's earnings record if she was covered under Social Security. This is a one-time payment and is paid in addition to any monthly survivors benefit that may be due now or in the future. Q. My children get Social Security benefits on their father's record. He died 4 years ago. I plan to remarry, and my new husband wants to adopt the children. Will that have any effect on their benefits? A. No. However, you must notify Social Security of the change in your children's names, the date of the adoption decree, and the adopting parent's name and address.
