Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your wife.

You will report her death to Social Security by calling 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Choose the option to report a death.

You will be entitled to a one-time death benefit of $255.00 as her surviving spouse.
