Welcome! My name is Maverick. I very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
Yes, as early as age 60 you are entitled to obtain social security benefits based on your ex's earning record as his surviving spouse since your marriage
lasted more than 10 years.
Go here to learn how to apply:
You can apply for benefits by calling 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****) or visiting your local Social Security office.
Please remember to assign a feedback rating so JA will compensate me for my time. You are free to ask follow-up questions thereafter at no charge. Please allow up to 24 hours for a follow-up response if I am signed off.
If, for some reason, you are not satisfied with the answer, I would appreciate knowing why so that I can try to clear up any misunderstanding that may have taken place and still earn a positive rating from you. If you would rather obtain a refund of your deposit, just let me know and I will inform JA on your behalf. Finally, you may request me in the future by beginning the question with "THIS IS FOR MAVERICK".
Thank you for using Just Answer.
