Usually at age 62 you can file for your own social security benefits. Would depend on what type of widows pension this is.

Go to the SSA gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE and use the search box where you can find some information

Can you draw social security and railroad retirement benefits?

I worked for the Fed Govt for 35 yrs before that I worked and paid 48 quarters into Social Security, my wife worked for the Railroad and was covered by Railroad Retirement, we are now retired. My Social Security was reduced under the Windfall Elimination Clause of the Social Security Act. I was entitled to a portion of my wife's Railroad Retirement Benefits. The Railroad Retirement Board recently informed me that they were reducing my benefits because I have a Federal pension. This is a double hit, since my Social Security benefits have already been reduced by 45%? I have appealed this ruling and hope to have it reversed. Can they reduce both benefits due to a Federal pension being drawn?

How would the distribution of income change if Social Security were privatized?

Privatizing social security would mean that it is no longer a guaranteed system that Americans can depend on. Instead, it would be more like a pension program, and many pension programs have ended because private companies have found them too costly. It is not worth the risk of such an important program ending or being downsized. People are really not going to save for there retirement money..that why we have this program so when we retire we can safely know that we have money.
