My condolences to see you for your loss. You can call Social Security to inform them of your wife's passing and you will need to call and schedule an appt. to apply for benefits. SEE BELOW:

Widows, widowers, and surviving divorced spouses cannot apply online for survivors benefits. If they want to apply for disability benefits on your record, they should contact Social Security at1-***-***-**** to request an appointment. (If they are deaf or hard of hearing, they should call our TTY number, 1-***-***-****.)
