It will depend on your deceased spouse's income from your deceased husbando income throughout his life. Social Security counts 35 years of income as an average and normally requires 10 years of working to be eligible. You can receive benefits at age 60 (with a reduction , receiving 70% to 99% of your deceased husbands benefits), 100% at full retirement age for survivors, at age 50 if you had a disability 7 years before his death and currently have a disability and any age if you are caring for his child under the age of 16. You can also get a one time benefit of $255 from SS. You need to give SS a call ( you cannot apply online for a widow's benefits) to ascertain your exact benefit.

I need the $ and cents answers. I thought this was the soc sec administration. I don't need a lawyer. I need a straight answer.
