Depending on when he died, it will stop. The check you receive in Jan is for December. If he died in December, if deposited, they will take it back. If he died in January you can keep that check. ASAP you need to go to your local SS office. There is a formula they go by but the simple explanation is, your SS will drop and you get his. With me I get 800 my husband gets 1600. If he passes I get his 1600 and my SS stops. You cannot receive both.
