Memorial Day and Survivors Benefits
(60 second audio script)
This May we observe Memorial Day and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Families of fallen military service members bear significant burdens from the loss of their loved ones. Aside from the emotional devastation, the financial hardships placed on such families can be difficult. Lives are changed forever. Social Security provides income for surviving families of military service members. Monthly Social Security benefits may be paid to widows or widowers and, under certain circumstances, dependent children, grandchildren, and parents.
