Not enough information to be answered here - make an appointment with your nearest Social Security Office.  Social Security Office Locator 

 

You do not have to be a citizen to get Social Security benefits but you do have to be eligible to receive them. 

 

The SS Representative will have to know

  • when and where was the marriage.
  • how long you have been living together (married) in the U.S.
  • Does she have a green card?  Or what is her Visa status?

Your spouse may have to contact USCIS -

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) - Naturalization for Spouses of U.S. Citizens 

 

All other conditions also apply for SS Survivior Benefits like her age and whether or not there are any dependent children.
