Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry for your loss. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What do you mean a much lesser sum is being deposited? Are you saying that your own benefit has been lowered---or just that the benefit that used to be paid o your husband has stopped?

2. Between you and your husband, which of you received the greater monthly benefit?
