Customer Question

I am a 83 year widow. My ss check is $1062 deposited in my bank each month. My late husband was a veteran from ww2 and passed away in 1992. I own my home, no payments. Is there any way I can get more benefits. I find it hard to get by now.
Thank you
Eva Vest

Hi Eva, are you collecting SS benefits on your own work record? Or is it based on your husband's work record?
