Not affiliated with the US Social Security Administration
I applied for Social Security in 2008. I was awarded on MY record in 2010. It came to my attention that the length of my divorced and deceased spouse was incorrectly entered in my record when I applied in 2008, therefore not reflecting 10 year requirement. So when I was awarded in 2010, I was only awarded benefits based on MY record, when his was higher and therefore could have added to my record. I have since applied for survivor benefits in 2010. My question is: When SSA reviews the application should they not take this into consideration when making a determination?
