Key Concepts

This Social Security Record screen is intended to capture information about the past earnings record of a deceased spouse. Although you can enter or import a deceased spouse's earnings history, you may not have access to that information. Instead you may enter your own gross monthly widow(er) benefit at full retirement age.


  • If your deceased spouse was already collecting Social Security benefits, you can enter that gross, monthly amount. If you don't know that amount, you can enter the amount of your widow(er) benefit at your full retirement age.
