I am 60 years old and was wondering if I can draw social security

This answer was rated:

I am 60 years old and was wondering if I can draw social security from my deceased husbands social security. I have remarried.

KUMI95 :

When did you remarry?

KUMI95 :

you cannot get widow’s or widower’s benefits if you remarry before age 60. But remarriage after age 60 (or age 50 if you are disabled) will not prevent you from getting benefit payments based on your former spouse’s work. And at age 62 or older, you may get benefits based on your new spouse’s work, if those benefits would be higher.

KUMI95 :

If you did not remarry before the age of 60, you can apply for widow benefits at age 60.
