Customer Question
Hi, My name is***** and My...
Hi,
My name is***** and My question is this. My son was disabled from birth and I stayed home to care for him . He passed away at age 20 & 1/2 yrs . I tried to work but it was all too much to deal with for me. Since my son's death my husband does not want me to work so I am now a stay at home wife . Is there any benefits that I may be eligible for because I get 0 and only fall under a percentage of my husbands SS .
Thank you ,
Mrs Petit
