My mom is 93 and. of course, living on Social Security. My

My mom is 93 and. of course, living on Social Security. My dad died about 10 years ago at the age of 84. They were married for about 30 years or so and then got divorced. They were divorced for well over two years at the time of his passing. My mom only collects her own Social Security. Is she eligible for higher benefits as a surviving spouse? Can she receive retroactive benefits from the time of his death until the current time? Your help is appreciated

I am the executrix M. Kilbourn, SSN: 170 40 1387, who died

I am the executrix for Linda M. Kilbourn, SSN:###-##-#### ***** died December 5, 2014. Her November 2014 benefit check was deposited in her bank account and then rescinded when her death was reported. I completed the application to have the check returned to her estate at the end of December. I have yet to receive it, and am told the application was included with my application for spousal benefits for some reason, and is now being reviewed by the legal department. I do not understand why this benefit check is being held up by the application for spousal benefits. These are two separate issues. Her benefit check is part of her estate. Can you assist me in getting that check returned so that I can complete my responsibility as her executor?

O' Joy only please... -- I see that my ex claims to be

Stephanie O' Joy only please...Hi Stephanie--I see that my ex claims to be married on some documents and wedding photos that I have seen but is telling Social Security and IRS that he is single. He had an actual wedding service and reception. By telling Social Security he is single he can try and get low income benefits since he is not working, which I want to prevent because if affects his garnishment for child support and a lot of other things.We live in Arizona and it is not a common law state and he has not filed for a marriage license either. What will Social Security go by in considering his financial status since they will not find a marriage license and they will see his taxes say single? His wife's large income should be imputed on him since she makes it so he does not have to work. He is the kind of person who does things like this.He is covered by his wife's health insurance from her company and has no assets since everything including bank account is in her name to keep him untouchable.I wonder if there is anything else I could provide to Social Security to help interfere with his deliberate efforts to appear broke and single?

I am 71 years old.I retired and went back to work part time

I am 71 years old.I retired and went back to work part time at the request of my former employer. Due to economic conditions, there was a massive lay off and all part time help was laid off. Even though I have been working, to try to find another job to supplement my income is hard as I am limited due to physical problems. I receive SS and a pension, but still need a little more to keep things together. I applied for UC and am getting fought on that and have had to appeal and waiting for a determination. Is there any way I can receive a supplement due to my declining health issues?
