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

Yes. You have to apply in person at your local Social Security office to find out and apply for benefits under your husband's work record.

Social Security recommends that you call the main number to schedule an appointment at your local office. The number is ***** and the hours of operation are 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

Thank you. There is usually an hour wait for a response when you call the number to schedule an appointment

I know, but there will be a very long wait at the local office if you do not schedule an appointment.
