My husband recently passed away, he was receiving ssi (disability) benefits. His was $840 and his daughters $298. They sent a letter saying hers would now be $698. I was never put on his ssi because not legally married . Now listed on his will as wife. I made $29,000 last year and 58 years old. Would I qualify for benefits or should I just leave it alone and let his daughter collect. (She lives with me) I will be her legal guardian)
I'm sorry for your loss.
