Hello and welcome.
My name is***** am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
As a widow, you would be entitled to his full benefits, however, if you are also receiving social security, you could lose that payment, as you would only be given one benefit, usually the widows benefit is higher and social security will pay the higher benefit only.
if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
If satisfied with our service please provide us with positive feedback, thank you
