Reader's questions should be sen! to "Social Security Administration, P. 0. Box 467, Blytheville) Q. At age 58 I became en- tilled to disability benefits on my own account but received only $45 a month. Is it possible for me to qualify now at age 61 on my deceased husband's record? A. In all likelihood, yes. You should check with your social security office as soon as possible as your widow's benefit could possibly be higher than the $45 you now receive. Q. At age 61 I remarried. At the time of my first husband's death he was receiving $100 per month. I am now 62 and my husband just became eligible for $78.20 per month in social security benefits. Is it possible for me to draw benefits on my first husband's record since I feel the benefits would be higher? A. Yes. You would be eligible for whichever benefit is higher, one-half of your former husband's amount or reduced wife's benefits on your present husband's record; and, as you can see, the benefit in this case would be higher on your first husband's account.
