The benefits for your mother, in the event your father dies before her, would be change from a non-working spousal benefit to a surviving spouse (widow) benefit. As such, her benefits would be adjusted to the amount your father was drawing. However, her benefit of $350 would cease since you can only draw one type of benefit at a time.

For more detailed information on Social Security Benefits, go to www.ssa.gov.

Good Luck
