I really am not going to do away with him, but I remember reading that when I turn 65, I will be eligible to receive my husband’s full Social Security payment. Is this true? In addition to my own? If this is true, should anything happen, that would mean I can stay in the house, keep my pets, etc. I know, this sounds like a heartless question and I certainly am not chafing at the bit for widowhood, but it would be a comfort to know if this is possible.
