Social Security, Pension and Veteran Affairs: An Answer to Your Questions

You might be wondering exactly how the probate process deals with social security, pensions, or even Veteran affairs. After all, you’re reading this article, so that means you must at least be curious. If so, and you’ve got questions, congratulations! You’ve come to the right place! In this article, we’ll look at just exactly that, and hopefully give you answers to all those burning questions. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

The Social Security Act

The concept of Social Security can be a confusing one, but it can actually be quite beneficial. What does it do exactly? For one thing, the Social Security Act is able to provide for survivor’s benefits to family members, as well as other benefits to any eligible persons. These benefits can include monthly payments or if preferred, a lump sum death payment.

Who Is Eligible for Veteran Benefits?

If anyone who may be entitled to benefits dies, a member of the family or interested party should contact the local Social Security office for any further information.

Any widows, minor children, or other family members may be eligible for benefits, if applicable. Anyone interested in finding out more about this should contact the appropriate pension company official for further information regarding this matter.

If someone dies and they were a Veteran, you should contact the Veteran’s Administration if you are curious about burial or death benefit information.
