Thank you for the information. Your Question: My question is, am I entitled to my first husband's social security instead of my second. Response: No. Since your second husband has passed, you are entitled to receive benefits under your ex-husband's earnings or your late husband's earnings. You have to choose which one to receive benefits under. Kindly give a positive rating to my post so that I can receive credit for answering your question—so that part of the deposit that you already paid to the site can be transferred to me. You are not charged extra for doing this. Thank you for your cooperation.
