En español | There is no time limit to claim a widow or widower benefit. These benefits will actually grow if you delay them until full retirement age. However, there IS a time limit to collect the "lump sum" death benefit. This is a one-time payment of $255. In order to receive this payment, you must file the application within a two-year period. Normally, this period ends with the second anniversary of the person's death.
