I think you mean SS (Social Security) rather than SSi (Supplemental Security Income). 

If you do mean Social Security - you are talking about the Surviving Spouse Benefit or Widow's Benefit.

 

Read the Widow or Widowers Section of this Social Security Survivors page.

https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou.html#h2 

 

It is helpful to use the correct terminology when talking to the SSA - 

You are a "Survivor" - you are asking about "Survivor" benefits - this covers Widowers or Widows.

Spousal benefits are something else.

 

Once you read this page on SS - if you have more question, come back and ask them.

I have asked the moderator to move this post to the "Social Security" board just so it is in the right place.
