Customer Question

I was working on a job covered by Social Security in 1952 I went to
a Railroad to sign up for medicare. I was almost 65 years old. I had
almost 25 years railroad service. This happened in early, June I was
65 on June 23rd. The person signed me up with an effective date of
3/1/52.
Did this cause me to lose time on my retirement benefits?
Also My wife who was drawing Social Security died in June
1996. Am I entitled to benefits from her account?
