I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Unfortunately, you are receiving the correct benefits that you are entitled to receive under your husband's earnings. Regrettably, you would not be entitled to more benefits because of "notch." The error Social Security Administration made with the "notch victims" has been long rectified by subsequent laws. For more information, click here.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
