My mom IS over 62

I’m not sure, but I do believe she has over 10 years of paying into SS outside of Texas teaching positions (not all in the same place). I’m also not sure how much was prior to her teaching in Texas.

She does supposedly qualify for widow’s benefits - but they are offset by her retirement income from Texas (she will be getting like $64 per month from SS as a a survivor’s benefit because of the offset).

If she has the 40 quarters, forget the widow’s benefits(since they are offset) and have her apply for her regular benefit. That is based on earnings and should not be offset.
