Dear Wilma:

I am not sure if there are any Social Security benefits for your situation.....It would have been better if you hadn't married and then you could have filed as a common law wife. The only thing I can think of is applying as a widow and then take the denial to a law judge to see if he can approve it.....
But since you did get married, you cannot say that you lived as husband and wife. There could be VA benefits available but you need to call the VA toll free number to see how you go about applying to them.
