Is it possible, at age 63, to receive my deceased husband's Social Security benefits and continue working part-time?

I am considering cutting back to part-time work. I am 63 years old and my husband passed away a few years ago. Would it be possible to receive his Social Security benefits and still work part-time?

You can work part time and received your widow's benefit, but your benefit will be reduced if you make more than $17,040 (2018 limit - it changes every year).  Here are more details straight from the Social Security Administration:  https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10069.pdf
