My husband worked from age of 18 with exception of 4 years of service in the USMC being discharged in 1952 to retirement age of 62 paying in the full amount each year, the benefit amount started out around $800.00 monthly with cost of living increases the amount is $1138.00 now. when my daughter applied just this month she was told her benefit would be $1925.00 per month,I am wondering if I can ask ss to recalculate my deceased husbands earnings and the amount be adjusted?
