My Social Security Optimization software can help a surviving spouse make an informed decision regarding claiming benefits. Benefits for the surviving spouse may be available at age 60 or earlier and unmarried children of the deceased may also be eligible for benefits. Social Security should be contacted immediately. Usually the SSI office will only explain your options,
A more detailed explanation of benefits is available at https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10008.pdf.
