Common Questions About Family Benefits (Spousal, Widow/Widower, Child) from the Social Security Administration
Will a spouse’s income affect my claim?
I was a stay-at-home parent and now I am disabled. I never worked, and my spouse has died. Can I receive benefits for myself and my children based on my spouse’s earnings?
Yes, you can if you are at least 50 years old. In this situation, you are applying for a disabled widow’s benefit. Your disability must have begun within 7 years of your spouse’s death or within 7 years of the time when your children were under 16 years.
