Does Social Security cover retirees only?

Nope. Disability and survivor benefits are included in the program. Contributions you make provide insurance in the event you become disabled; they also may cover your adult child if he or she becomes disabled before age 22. And, assuming you worked enough to qualify for retirement benefits, your spouse and children can receive Social Security survivor benefits after you die.
