Daisy, if and when I find a wife I hope she fights for me the way you fought for Alan. Your love for him in his struggles warmed my heart. God bless you and your family.

Daisy helped more people than most people know. She was always fighting for someone, giving her time freely to those who needed it.

Sorry, Headshot, I have to disagree with you on this support requirement. I do not see anywhere mentioning that an affidavit of support is required for applying the widow’s via. In order to make sure,

if youhave to  come to the states and need a place to stay we always have a room

daisy,       when faced with what seems like an insurmountable problem, the best way to tackle it is to break it into smaller more manageable parts. i would suggest at this time of loss you should

Daisy, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, my condolences for you and your family.  Tonny gave you some very good advice.  If your husband was an American, then he more than likely had American social security coverage.  As his widow, you should receive at least half of what he was getting when he was alive (maybe more depending on the circumstances) and any children you had together who are under the age of 18 will qualify for a monthly benefit (usually over $500 USD a month.)  I believe there is a Social Security office in the Embassy and the Consulate in Cebu may also help you get and fill out the necessary forms to get some money rolling in every month.  They surely have a website that contains information on how to claim death benefits.  Here is the URL  http://www.ssa.gov

Thanks for this info....Yes, he had SS pension.  will I qualify for this even if I have not been to the US?.I have no update on anything anymore regarding US Embassy....I am so disappointed with them on how they  help Americans in destitute situation because they never will  as to the cases of the few Americans I had tried to help before. Other Embassies will help their constituents. But I will try again. .

Sincerest Condolences.... As i had mentioned in the past to another member, my wife and I would like to contribute something to assist in your needs but have had difficulty reaching out as we dont know how to use the Palawan store to send financials.

 

Though weve never met, We extend our Heartfelt sympathies to you and your family.

I would suggest asking Tonny (Jimmy / James). He is a very valuable resource, concerning the Social Security Administration. But, from the limited knowledge I have, I do not think you will. HOWEVER, I do believe, as the widowed spouse of an American citizen, it may allow you the possibility of going to the US, if you, or he, have family you could depend on while you get established there? Do not hold me to this. But, I believe that may be true.

Unless one is active US Military, which makes the person US government property, the US Embassy / State Department, typically, doesn't give two shits about its citizens abroad. This ESPECIALLY applies to the US Embassy in the Philippines.
