Can I Still Use Your Software If I Can't Get A Copy Of My Deceased Wife's Earnings History?

Nov 19 2019 - 5:39pm


I am looking at purchasing your software. I have a question: since my wife passed away in April of 2018, I cannot get a copy of her earnings history from the social security office. How will this affect the use of the software, or is there a way to get this information.



Hi Bennett,

I'm sorry for your loss.

Even if can't get a record of your wife's earnings history, Social Security should be able to give you an estimate of how much your gross monthly widower's benefit would be at your full retirement age. Our software ( can then use that information to calculate your options with regard to widower's benefits and help you determine your best strategy for maximizing your benefits.

Best, Jerry
