I' sorry to hear that. I know how rough it was for my mom. You c an bet all of yours or all of his (the higher of the two). Something is very wrong. I would visit a local SS office (bring a marriage and his death certificate). They should correct it retroactively and get you his amount (I assume it was higher than yours or what you received. I can offer you a call to make sure you know how to resolve this very easily and very quickly. What city and state do you live in?
