Just Ask A husband and wife may receive separate checks for their Social Se curity benefits if either requests this, Roger B. Evans, Social Security manager in Covington, said recently. However, monthly benefits payable to a husband and wife who are get- ting benefits on the same record and who are living at the same ad- dress are usually combined in one check made out jointly to the hus- band and wife. This costs less and is usually more convenient, Mr Evans said Separate Supplemental Security Income (SSI) checks are sent to all eligible individuals even if they live in the same household, Mr Evans said. If one member of an eligible . couple dies, any check that has not been cashed should be returned to the Social Security office Any pay- ment due the deceased member will be paid to the surviving member if they were living together.
