Whether or not a woman can collect on her husbands social security depends on several factors. First, she has to be old enough or disabled. Second, she has to have been married long enough. Then, she must be widowed or divorced. Other rules may apply. As with everything involving the government, exceptions exist. You will need to see someone at the social security office.
