Filing For Survivor Ss Questio
Posted 14 July 2012 - 10:21 AM
My 60th birthday is in January and I have read that it's best to apply for my deceased husband's SS a few months before my 60th birthday to give SS time to process.
I receive SS disability and also receive DIC as he was a disabled veteran at this time.
My question is: I have all my documents I require except the following
Deceased worker's W-2 forms or federal self-employment tax return for the most recent year.
Since I already receive SS disability (I already draw from his retirement) will I be required to have his W-2 forms or tax return. The SS did not ask me for his W-2 or tax return when I was granted my current SS Survivor check or DIC.
Again Thank You for your help.

I recall a widowed neighbor I knew was getting SSDI but when she was eligible for SSA retirement benefits, the SSA told her it was the same amount as her SSDI monthly check and I dont think she needed to apply for anything.
It isn't an additional benefit.
I dont think they would need any W-2 forms or anything like that at all.
