Please accept my sincere condolences.

Current amount on one time death benefits is $255

In additional you may be eligible for survival spouse benefits that are 100% of your late husband's benefits if you are above your FRA - full retirement age.

You may apply over the phone.

You will need to visit a local SSA office - and provide your marriage and his death certificates.

They will make copies and will return you original documents.

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