Qualifying for Social Security Survivor Benefits?

I am 54 years old. I am on SSDI, because I had several strokes, and am paralyzed. I was put on SSDI in September 2010. My spouse, who was 57, developed stage 4 cancer, and went on SSDI October of 2013, she died two months ago, July 5th, 2014. Am I entitled to survivor's benefits as a widower?

Call you local Social Security Office and talk to them. They will know the proper answer and procedures.

Hi - you will need to get correct answers from your SS office but you are already receiving benefits so I do not believe you would be entitled to a second check?

However, when you reach 65 or 66 then you may be able to draw from ONE of three sources: your own SS benefits or from your wife's regular SS benefits or from the same SSDI that you now receive. Check with your SS office.
