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
What you have heard is true ... you can draw a widow benefit as early as age 60
Even if we were married for six years? I also had heard that we had to be married for 10 years. Should i just go to my loval office? Thank you for your condolences
Local office. Sorry my typing is awful
The 10 year rule is for ex spouses. If you were married at the time of his death, and were married for at least 9 months, you can draw the survivor benefit
And yes, you can go to your local office to get the survivor benefit started. They will need your marriage certificate and his death certificate
Thank you. I will take a copy of our marriage license and death certificate to the local office.
