My husband died 15 years ago (2002), while I was able bodied and working. I became disabled in 2014 and now live in an assisted living facility. I was told since I was not disabled when my husband passed that I could not received any of his benefits. I am now on SSI, but the amount is so small I cannot afford to live. I was also told that I could begin to received some of his benefits when I turn 60. I will be 59 this year. Is it possible to apply for his benefits now?
