SSA benefits the same for survivors whether person retired, disabled
Q: If a person receiving Social Security disability since his 50’s dies at age 68, does the fact that he started receiving Social Security long before retirement age reduce the amount of survivors benefits to his widow? In other words, are survivor benefits less because the deceased received SSA disability rather than retirement?
