Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of your husband.

You can receive reduced benefits as early as age 60 or full benefits at full retirement age or older.

You will have to call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday. When you call, have your husband's information (name, social security number, date of birth, and date of death) available to provide to the Social Security representative.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
