deceased spouse benefits

I qualify for SS myself.  If my husband dies, will I additionally receive some of his SS?  If yes, for how long?

OK, figured it out myself.  If I am over 66 and 10 months (full retirement age), and my husband dies, I will stop getting my SS and get 100% of what he was getting until I pass.  

 

If I am less than 66, I would receive some lesser percentage as a function of how close my age at time of death was to 66.
