Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax. Thanks for asking for me.
Calling the social security phone number can get a general answer, and although well meaning, you need a specific answer about your benefits.
I suggest you go to a local social security office and have a case worker review your wage record and your deceased husband's account. If a bigger benefit is available, you can process the paperwork while you are there.
This is the best resolution I can suggest. I hope you go and get the best benefit you are entitled to. Good luck.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
