You need to get access to Ancestry.com as they have a lot of information on this person. He was married to Sadie and lived in Manhattan. He was born in Budapest he says. Appears he died in July 1946 and is buried in New Jersey at Riverside Cemetery. His death certificate is on FamilySearch transcribed ... see below
As for the questions you asked the Social Security application and file should be available at the Social Security Administration. You might have to file under the Freedom of Information Act which might be somewhat time consuming. The application costs about $25 but I am not sure if you ask for a search for the claim file.
If this is the right person it looks like the wife died three years later and is buried with him. Use Findagrave.com and search for them at RIverside in Saddlebrook, New Jersey. No pictures posted.
My guess is that there was a child making a claim against the father's Social Security if in fact a claim was made in the 1970s.
Ancestry by the way shows the claim date as Aug 5, 1946.

It only included the following details:
Name : Sam Weissberger
Birth: 18th October 1878 Hungary
Claim date: 24th September 1976
Death date: 5th Aug. 1946
Field office address: 11 W42 ST. NYC
Reference no.: 65179247946
Claim type: Death Claim
This raises a few questions:
1. I didn't find any place where I could see the original. DOES ANYONE
KNOW WHERE I COULD SEE IT?
2. The death claim was submitted on 24th September 1976 over 20 years
after the actual death ( 15th July 1946) .I believe this is a transcription
error . What do you think? (The only thing that encouraged me in submitting
a claim is that there was a wife or a child that survived him.)
