Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

I am sorry about your loss. You need to make an appointment at your local social security office. The one time death benefits is $255 but you may be eligible for surviving benefits (benefits based on your late husband's records), if you are 60 or older (50 or older if disabled or any age if you are carrying for your child/children).

You can find your local social security office here: https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp
