If you are a widow(er) or surviving divorced spouse and you file an application in the month after the month of the worker's death, you may be entitled to benefits in the month of the worker's death.
So - if you applied in July - you are entitled for benefits for June and July - assuming you are otherwise eligible.

It might take up to three months to process application - and you should receive the full amount retroactively.

I might suggest to contact the SSA and verify the status of your application.

Let me know your zip code and I will find a local SSA office serving your area.
