Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi Iris. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You can, and you are most likely receiving the higher of your own or your widow benefits. You can only receive one benefits at the time, your own or your widow, but not both.
If you are eligible for more than one type of social security benefits, the SSA usually pays you the highest benefits available to you, unless you specifically request otherwise.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
