You were denied because you are not eligible. You would be able to re-apply after you turn age 60, not age 62. Age 62 is if your husband were still alive. So, upon reaching age 60 in October, you should go to the local office of Social Security Administration and apply for benefits or you can do so on the phone. However, it is better to go in person with your documents and apply. For more information on how to apply, click on the link below:
