Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Yes, you may be eligible for survivors benefits if you are at least 60 years old (reduced benefits) or 50 if you are disabled (or you become disabled within next seven years). If you are at full retirement age (66), you can collect survivors benefits if higher than your own.
You will loose your benefits if you remarry before 60.
You can only receive one benefits at the time, usually the highest one. If Thatcher's benefits (survivor benefits) are higher than your own or benefits based on your previous spouse's records, than you will can switched to survivor's benefits. Only SSA can access those records and give you your options.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
