My husband died 15 years ago when I was 46, however I work full time. Am I eligible for any widow benefits even though I work?

Hi and welcome to our site!Yes - you are eligible for widow benefits that might be as much as 100% of your husband's social security benefits.You may start benefits at age 60.

You may receive benefits and work at the same time - but your earning would be limited.If your earned income will be above certain limit - your social security benefits will be reduced.Questions?
