(ii) The claimant has not previously withdrawn an application for old age benefits.
(c) Request for withdrawal filed after the claimant's death. An application may be withdrawn after the claimant's death, regardless of whether we have made a determination on it, if—

(2) The claimant died before we certified his or her benefit entitlement to the Treasury Department for payment;
(3) A written request for withdrawal is filed at a place described in § 404.614 by or for the person eligible for widow's or widower's benefits based on the claimant's earnings; and
(4) The conditions in paragraphs (b) (2) and (3) of this section are met.
