My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.

See link to Social Security website:https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/Article/3766/Who-can-get-Social-Security-survivors-benefits-and-how-do-I-apply

"A widow or widower can receive benefits

(1) at age 60 or older.

(2) at age 50 or older if disabled.

(3) at any age if she or he takes care of a child of the deceased who is younger than age 16 or disabled."

"You cannot apply for survivors benefits online. To report a death or apply for survivors benefits, please

(1) call our toll-free number, 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****).

(2) You also can call or visit your local Social Security office."

Regarding the disability, the disability must have started before or within seven years of the your husband's death. If you meet one of those criteria you would be eligible for 100 percent of your husband's benefit amount as a survivor benefit.
