Sorry for your loss...

Yes - you are eligible for social security benefits as a surviving spouse.

Your surviving spouse benefits are equals to your husbands benefits if you start these benefits at your FRA - full retirement age which is between 66 and 67 depending on your year of birth.

If you start benefits before your FRA - your benefits would be reduced.

Let me know if you need any help with determination.
