Form SSA-24, Application for Survivors Benefits, is a document filled out by survivors of the veteran - their surviving spouse, surviving divorced spouse, children, or parents - to claim Social Security benefits.
The information on this form is collected by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to determine whether the survivors of the veteran qualify for these benefits. Survivors Benefits will help you pay for everyday living expenses and medical bills without making a regular income after the death of the veteran you were financially dependent on. The amount of benefits will depend on the number of children you care for, your disability, and age.
This form was released by the SSA. The latest version of the form was issued on April 1, 2014, with all previous editions obsolete. You can download a fillable SSA-24 Form through the link below.
