Can I collect Social Security on my husband’s record (he was on SSDI)?

Full Question: My husband began receiving Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits around age 57. He recently died at age 60; I am 65 but still working till my full-retirement age. His SSDI was $450 higher than my SS will be at age 66. Am I able to collect on his rather than mine when I retire?

Answer: Yes. You can collect his higher benefit amount. Thanks for following the column.
