Understanding Social Security Survivor Benefits

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Sep 09, 2021 | 0 Comments

As I have noted before, Social Security provides far more benefits to far more people than you think. Most folks imagine that Social Security is there only to provide retirement income. But, in fact, Social Security has programs that can assist people of virtually any age. One of these is survivors' benefits.  Survivor benefits arise when a person has died and left behind a family with financial needs.

Details, Details

As with any Social Security program, there are endless rules and complications to consider for survivor benefits. A recent article answers eight common questions about this program. The article is detailed and uses examples to help explain survivor benefits. It is well worth reading, even if you have no cause to

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
