Memorial Day and Every Day
(60 second audio script)

In May, Social Security observes Memorial Day and Military Appreciation Month — but we serve members of the military and their families every day of the year. Families of fallen military service members bear significant burdens from the loss of their loved one. Often, when a death occurs, a two-income household must make do with one. 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.
