To JAFO,
I did mean the greater of her own payment vs 50% of her husband's.

To JABO,
There is no need to get into a huff. I was unaware that at a spouses death, the widow(er) gets 100% of the spouses benefit, if it is greater. I assumed their payment would not change. No "lies or misconceptions" were intended.
