Often Social Security benefits are a mystery especially when a spouse passes. The surviving spouse is entitled to a benefit equal to 100% of the deceased benefits as long as the survivor wants until their full retirement age. At 60 you could collect a survivor benefit but the benefit will be reduced. What that means is do an analysis of what is best for you when considering taking a survivor benefit from Social Security. Yes, it may be hard to understand but once you know what to do, you will rest easier.
