Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
First, I am so sorry about your loos. Just to make clear. Nobody can collect your husband's social except him. But you are entitled to what's known as widows benefits - YOUR benefits based on HIS records. You can collect widow's benefits as soon as 50, soon if you are disabled or taking care of his child. You cannot apply online, you have to call SSA at 1-***-***-**** to make an appointment at your local SS office.
