I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry for your loss. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Thanks for asking for me.
There is little that can be done at this point as regards ***** ***** of social security records that you referred to. It sounds as if your father did all he could to prove his income and receive the increase that was awarded after he received help from his Congressman. However, as your father is now deceased, your mother is entitled to a Survivor benefit from social security.
Because a person may only collect one benefit at a time, she will be entitle to the greater benefit provided by her own retirement benefit or the survivor benefit.
A survivor benefit pays 100% of the amount that the deceased spouse was receiving at the time of their death, so that means that your mother will qualify to receive the same amount of benefit that your father was getting from social security at the time of his passing.
