If her work history leads to a higher benefit for you, a survivor benefit would up your monthly payment. A visit to your SSA office will math the math easy. Otherwise, there isn't a benefit paid to survivors. The death benefit you likely already received. Wish I had better news. Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated.
