Hi Larry

My father has passed away recently , is my mother eligible for Survivors benefits even though she makes little more?

Hi,

I'm sorry for your loss.

The answer to your question depends on your mother's age among a number of other factors, so I can't really give you an answer. You may want to refer to Social Security's website: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou2.html.

Best, Jerry
