    • We are sorry to hear about your loss, Carole. Unfortunately and because of security reasons we do not have access to personal records in this blog. One of our representatives should be able to answer your questions. Please continue working with the office that’s processing your claim for survivor’s benefits. If you are unable to visit your local office, you may call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later in the week. Thanks.
