SS question

Does SS stop immediately when someone dies? The reason I asked this is because my father died last year, and his 4th wife seems shady and my father was getting his SS monthly in his acct,. How do I know she never cancelled it and she is collecting it, and moved to another state and will have it transferred? She isn't old enough to collect - she is only 61. Also she gave away all of his stuff to her son. She has all of a sudden a brand new car, and left her home and pets to be w/her immediate family.

Basically, how does SS know if my father passed away and is it automatically cancelled?

Suze Orman's Advice to Delay Social Security Benefits Until Age 70 is Too Broad

Noted financial adviser Suze Orman says most folks should begin Social Security retirement benefits at age 70.

However, this is poor advice if you're in poor health or if you're a notably lower-earning spouse relative to your husband or wife. Ideally, the spouse with the substantially higher lifetime earnings will let their benefit accrue at 8% per year until age 70.
