You will receive higher of your own benefits or survivor benefit

If you are getting benefits based on your own work, contact Social Security, and they will check to see if you can get more money as a widow or widower. If so, you will receive a combination of benefits that equals the higher amount. You will need to complete an application to switch to survivors benefits, and they will need to see your spouse's death certificate.
