ss question

I have a gov pension and no ss. My wife will get her ss benefit fully based on her record. I understand I will be able to get medicare based on her record. My question is if she predeceases me will I still be eligible for medicare even gov pen offset will eliminate any monthly benefit?

Seems like it from the info here: - Medicare Eligibility Tool (General Enrollment)

But it is always best to check with the Medicare people.
