I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
I'm sorry to hear about your loss
As you were legally married when your husband passed away, you are entitled to his social security benefit
Since you have not reached full retirement age, that benefit will be reduced. Instead of getting 100% of his benefit, you will get a benefit that would be more like 75% of his benefit
Also, if you work your benefits will be further reduced $1 for every $2 you earn above $15,120.
If you wait until age 66, you will get 100% of his benefit
In either case, once you reach age 66 you can work and earn an unlimited amount
