You indicated that you “just took your benefit”. I wonder if the SS Rep could have been referring to a situation where you passed PRIOR TO the date your benefits were considered to have begun. What is the actual month when you turn 70? No doubt if you passed after benefits have begun, she will receive your benefit amount from then on and her stops, but I could not find anything in POMS that directly states the date your benefits begin.
