People in the United States who are more than sixty years of age are commonly referred to as senior citizens or seniors. U.S. law and society recognize the special needs of senior citizens. The most important aid to senior citizens is the US Social Security program. It is important to understand your available benefits before you need them. Seniors sixty-two or older may be eligible to receive partial to full social security benefits if they have been employed for the mandatory minimum amount of time and by having made contributions to Social Security.

The Urban Funeral Home staff will notify Social Security after the death of a loved one. There is a one time death benefit of $250.00 for a surviving spouse. Monthly benefits vary pending work history, age, living dependents, and personal health issues. Please take time to visit the Social security website and understand your benefits.
