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

You may be able to receive benefits under your husband's work record, but you cannot apply until you reach age 62.

If you qualify, you would be entitled to receive up to 1/2 of his benefit amount.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
