Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi from Just Answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.
You can collect widow's social security benefits as early as age 60. They are reduced for claiming early, but you can claim.
If you can claim at full retirement age, your benefit will go up to a full benefit (100% of his).
If this covers things, please rate my assistance with positive feedback. That closes out your question. Follow up is welcomed if needed. I'm PDtax.
