Widow's pension payments are made when the late spouse satisfied the country's requirements, including contribution, cohabitation, and length of marriage for the pension. In the US, it's Social Security.


Answer by  Starfish (214)

If your spouse has passed away you may be entitled to benefits from the company or VA or Social Security, wherever he or she worked. If you are divorced or remarried you may still be entitled. You need to determine what the criteria are; these vary depending on the source.
