I am so sorry for your loss of spouse.Call here and make appointment, you have to go in person to local social security office.You get spousal benefits and a one time death benefit as well.

Here is contact information.

Widows, widowers, and surviving divorced spouses cannot apply online for survivors benefits. If they want to apply for disability benefits on your record, they should contact Social Security at

I appreciate the chance to help you today, wish you the best here.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is m uch appreciated.
