Customer Question

My husband passed in October 28, 2013 and I thought I was supposed to receive spousal benefits. Is this not true?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

My apologies but what specifically are you referring to as 'spousal benefits'? Are you referring to burial expenses, or additional social security? How old are you and how old was your spouse--was he retired at time of passing? Please advise.
