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

You can apply for Widow's Benefits on your husband's record.

You can call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday

OR

You can visit your local social security office, but it helps to call Social Security first to schedule an appointment at your local office.

The following link contains the information you will be required to provide when applying for benefits:

https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-10.html

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
