Hi,

I'm sorry for your loss.

If you are at least age 50 and disabled or at least age 60, then it sounds like you could potentially qualify for widow's benefits. Depending on your own work history you may also have other filing options available to you, so you may want to consider using the maximization software available on this website to determine your best filing strategy.

Best, Jerry
