AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

Are survivor benefits decreased if claimed early?

En español | The benefit does increase in value until you reach your full retirement age, at which time you can collect 100 percent of your deceased spouse's benefit. If you chose to collect at 60 you will receive only 71.5 percent. This amount increases for every month you delay benefits until your full retirement age.
