What does: "was...

What does: "was he or she entitled to a monthly benefit on the same earnings record as the deceased at the time of death" means. I am trying to fill out this form Soc, Security sent me. I don't understand the question.

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?
