Yes she will receive your Dad's full benefit if that benefit exceeds her own. She will not receive both, however.

Just the greater of the two amounts.

That's fine. I'm not sure what you expected me to tell you, other than the facts of how the system works.

However, I don't make the rules, I'm a user here just like you, so please don't shoot the messenger.

I would appreciate it if you would give me a positive rating as I've answered your question accurately & truthfully.

I wish you well in this difficult time for you & your mother having just lost your Dad.

I understand what you are going through, having been through a similar situation myself.
