Good evening,

My condolences on your loss. There is no deadline to file the death certificate with social security. In most cases in fact, the funeral home notifies them of the person's passing (if you have given them your spouse's social security number). If you are looking to apply for survivor benefits, you can go to any office, but it may be easier to contact your local social security office and make an appointment, so you don't spend as much time waiting once you get there. More information on how to apply for survivor benefits can be found here on the SSA website.
