Customer Question

I'm 90 yrs old (born 8-9-25), a California teacher, married 19 yrs then divorced, never remarried, husband did not remarry. He died 1993. At that time I was told on phone a teacher can't get her own or dead husband's social security. I let it go at that. I just found out that those who were born 1927 and earlier were not under that law and I should have been given his SS when he died. Am I right? What do I have to do if this is correct?
