When a woman loses her spouse she cannot receive widows benefits if she is under 50. If a woman is disabled and under 50 she is on her own. Congress changed this law and they need to repeal the change. Too many families have lost everything because when the spouse died so did their income or a portion of it. It is difficult enough trying to deal with the loss and then to punish the woman because she is under 50 is unacceptable.
