Can I get Social Security from deceased husband once I am 63 years of age?

Q) Can I get Social Security from deceased husband once I am 63 years of age? If so is it a percentage or full amount?

A) You can receive benefits as a surviving divorced spouse on the Social Security record of a deceased former spouse who is fully insured.  If you:

  • Are at least age 60, or age 50 and disabled;
  • Were married to the former spouse for at least 10 years;
  • Are not entitled to a higher Social Security benefit on your own record; and
  • Are unmarried, unless the following exception applies:  You remarried after age 60; or after age 50 and at the time of re-marriage you were entitled to Social Security disability benefits.

You can apply or get an estimate of benefits online or by calling 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

  1. I have been trying for TWO YEARS to make contact with SSA re my pension. I have eMailed, telephoned and written letters as well as havion g my bank FAX documents according to your directives. NONE were ever acknowledged or responded to. I have changed my address and all future mail from SSA will soon be returned to SSAA «address unknown». THis is a ridiculous situation and ALL phone numbers provided on your dysfunctional website are not usable in Canada.

    PLEASE contact me and provide some means of EFFECTIVELY changing by address and banking route.

    Thank You,
