I have been getting my own SSA since 2013 for being disable. Ex-Husband passed September 18th, 2022, I did application for survivors' benefits September 24, 2022, claim was approved May 24. 2022. I was found disabled under survivor's standards March 2021. I was approved for full benefits from December 2021 -April 2022. Don't I qualify for partial benefits starting September 2021-November 2021? How long do it take Social Security to calculate back time owed these days? Will interest be added as they do when you owe them?

What is the difference between VA survivor benefit and social security widow’s benefits? Can I collect both? My full retirement age is 67. Can I retire at 65 using my late ex husband social security? Will I be penalized?
Hi. My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits, so I can't answer any questions about VA benefits. What I can tell you is that if you receive VA benefits, it would have no adverse effect on any type of Social Security benefits for which you are eligible.
I'm 65 been disabled for years receiving SSI and social security early retirement when I turned 62 (I missed the filing 'date of last insured" for SSDI) I was self-employed most of my life and have a very low social security benefit. Was married over 30 years divorced for 2 in July was planning on filing for spousal benefits as my (ex)wife worked her whole life, but she just died a month before her 62nd birthday.
??? Is her social security not available to me now???
I understand that she may have been getting Medicare, she had ALS. (I didn't know she was sick.)
My ex husband died a few months ago. We were married for fifteen years. He was deported and never collected his social,security. I did briefly remarry for three years. Do I qualify for spousal benefits?
Hi. If you're unmarried now or if your current marriage occurred after you reached age 60, then it sounds like you could potentially qualify for survivor benefits as early as age 60, or 50 if you're disabled. Your ex's deportation wouldn't affect your potential eligibility, assuming he was insured for Social Security benefits.
Hello. Married for 15 years. Divorced in 2004. Ex-husband died in 2009 at age 54 without ever claiming benefits. Ex would have reached FRA in February 2022 (66, 2 months). I am retired. I'm thinking of applying for survivors benefits in February/March 2022. I will be 61, 5 months in February 2022 and 61, 6 months in March 2022. My understanding: My survivor benefit will be based on ex-husband's full PIA plus any COLAs with a reduction (21.8% if collect in February 2022 and 21.4% in March 2022).
I was married to my first husband 4/10 years before we divorce. I remarried and divorce my second husband. Can I collect Social Security from my first husband who is now deceased.
