Surviving spouses and divorced surviving spouses can get Social Security disability benefits (SSDI) based on their deceased spouse’s work record. These benefits are called disabled widow(er)’s benefits (DWB).
To apply for DWB benefits, the surviving spouse or ex-spouse must be at least 50 years of age. To qualify for DWB benefits, you must prove that the onset of your disability is before age 60 and no later than seven years after the deceased spouse’s death.
