Where can we get info on widow entitlements. mother collects her ss .However we want to know if she is entitled to her deceased husbands ss
You can get the information on widow entitlements at http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/social_welfare/social_welfare_payments/death_related_benefits/benefits_and_entitlements_following_a_death.html. The widow's benefits will also depend on how you were dependant on the diseased. On the other hand, a widow is also entitled to the husband's SS but must have remarried after age 60. Visit http://www.socialsecurity.gov/policy/docs/ssb/v70n3/v70n3p89.html for more information.
I believe whichever is the most. She should go to her nearest SS office and check on it.
