    You can draw widow's benefits at age 60 at the earliest (50 if you're disabled), and then only if you haven't remarried before then. However, if you start drawing at that age your benefit amount per month would be reduced from what it otherwise would be if you waited until full retirement age of 67. Your child may have been eligible for survivor's benefits up through age 19 if s/he was a full time student, but not after that.
