social security benefits from deceased spouse?

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Finance (Not Investing) - www.bogleheads.org
Hi all, been digging around online trying to get a better understanding of how social security works. My mother passed away 2 years ago at 60. She was not collecting anything from SS at the time. My father is already 67 but it still working. What are the general details in a situation like this regarding SS benefits?

-Is he allowed to collect benefits from his spouse's SS plan while he's working?

-When he retires, will he be able to collect from his own and his spouse's plan?

-Or is he only allowed to collect from his own once he retires?

Thanks for any guidance on this.
