why does my ex husband of 45 years draw over 2000 monthly and I only draw 724

Spouse (Male) is deceased and for more than 22 years, widow is 61 and interested in receiving survivor social security benefits. At what age can she apply for these benefits.

How long do you need to be married to get benefits from spouce

I lost my husband in 2006 and in 2007 I was diagnosed with a disabling disease but I've been told I'm not eligible due to I remarried. My understanding is that if you are disabled with in 7yrs of the death of your spouse you are eligible and can draw from there S.S. if you remarried or not. Yet I have been denied. What is the truth? So Frustrated

What do I need to present to ask for ex-spouse benefits


Social Security Disability Guide -

If a person has paid into the system long enough the following benefits are payable:

1. Retirement benefits at age 62. Spouses benefits at age 62 if not insured to higher benefit on own account. Includes divorced spouses if married ten years.
2. Widow/widowers benefits at age 60. Disabled widow/er benefits between ages 50 and 60 if disabled at time of spouse's death or within 7 years if not entitled to higher benefit on own account. Includes divorced spouses if marriedten years.
3. Disability benefits until reach full retirement age. No such thing as a disability benefit once full retirement age has been reached (now age 66; will be age 67).
4. Benefits to dependent unmarried children -
a) Under age 18.
b) Beyond age 17 if full-time high school student until graduation or age 19 and two months - whichever comes first. Not paid to attend college.
c) Beyond age 17 if became disabled before age 22 and not entitled to a higher benefit on own account.
5. Benefits to dependent grandchildren BUT child's parents must either be deceased or entitled to social security disability benefits. There are other factors of entitlement.
6. Medicare at age 65. Also someone on disability is eligible for it after 24 months of entitlement and anyone who is suffering from chronic renal failure requiring dialysis and/or transplant.

Any child, including illegitimate, can be entitled. Parents do not have to have been married and there is no duration of marriage requirement for child's benefits. That information given by Flower is incorrect.

SSI (Supplemental Security Income) is NOT a social security benefit. It is a benefit paid to those who are blind, disabled or aged who have limited income and resources. Benefits are paid out of general tax revenues - not the social security trust fund.
