MY FATHER PASS AWAY 10-15-2016 HE WAS MARRIED FOR 5YEARS WILL SHE GET THE $255.00 SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH BENEFIT?

Other answer:

thomas7755@sbcglobal.net:
Yes. Why wouldn't she? The duration of marriage requirement for survivor benefits is 9 months. If less than 9 months, the only exceptions to the 9 months rule is if the death was accidental or while on active duty in the military service.

If he hadn't of been survived by a spouse, his children wouldn't be entitled to it unless they were entitled to monthly benefits on his account in the month of his death. If no wife or entitled children then it isn't payable to anyone.

You can actually call SS to ask any questions you have, but of course his wife will receive the death benefit. Marriage is a legal contract.
Mary:
Usually the current spouse will get the death benefit, but she has to apply for it. It doesn't magically appear.
Ryan M:
Of course she will. Why wouldn't she?? My wife passed after 6 months of marriage and I got it. Why is her getting $255 a big deal to you and any of your business?
