Hello and and thank you for your question. For over 34 years, I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you. I am so sorry but she has not as they were not maried. And when you are referring to would be widow's benefits. But to qualify, you must be at least 60 years old. Thanks for understanding.
