    Take a copy of the marriage certificate, the death certificate,a nd of course your husband's social security number to the local social security office.

    if you arrive after 3 in the afternoon, you don't have to wait as long.

    Take a book - you probably will have to wait.

    The amount of benefits you receive depend in part on when you apply, so do this right away - Monday is a holiday, so Tuesday is a good day to apply.

    The worst that can happen is that you'll be denied. And, they have to state a reason, so you can appeal if you have a strong case.

    Good luck to you

    ssi is different from ssd,if your husband was receiving payments from ssd then for sure you would receive benefits,you should have been receiving them while he was alive.for ssi it's different ssd means you worked and have enough credits to receive payment if you became unable to work,ssi is a different thing so i don't think you will receive anything unless you were getting something before he died,with ssd the money you were receiving before he died would increase and if there are minor children they would continue to receive the same money they was getting before their father died

    Contact the Social Security office in your city. Have your husbands SS # with you and they will look up everything and give you all the information you need.

    I'm sorry for you loss.
