Can a Widow From a Gay Couple Married Abroad in 1992 Collect a Widows Benefit?

Category: 

I have not seen this issue discussed, either at PBS.org or with the Social Security website - my spouse was receiving disability benefits (since 1992) before she died (at age 52), we were married for 10 years, and could not file as "Married" on our income taxes because it was not allowed at the time. Am I entitled to any widow's benefits when I reach the age of 60?
