my late husband and I were married for 40 years. He just died at age 64. I am 62. He was still working, not collecting any Social Security benefits. I currently earn about $45,000 per anum. Because his care prior to his passing has cleaned us out, I cannot hope to keep our newly purchased (last 3 years, no real equity) on my salary alone. Do my earnings disqualify me from collecting any immediate survivor benefits?
I'm sorry for your loss.
