My husband claims it, but I'm not old enough to claim it yet, and seeing as we are now resident here I will never be able to claim, so if I'm ever a widow the entitlement will stop. I've worked all my life paid my contributions, and think I should be entitled to it.
This is a typical situation for so many of us living in Spain. And whenever we dare to complain at this being unfair, we get some friendless nobody in the UK telling us how we shouldn´t need it because it is so hot here in Spain - all year round !
