I have worked all my life and just turned 62, I have worked plenty enough to draw my own ss when I retire at 65. My husband passed away in 2003 at a young age, and I received a small check from the Municiple Retirement System each month from the job he held. Will this amount be deducted from my SS benefits when I do retire?
The only pensions that affect Social Security benefits are pensions based on your own work that was exempt from Social Security taxes. So, a survivor pension from your husband's former employer won't affect your Social Security benefit rates.
It sounds like you may have a number of Social Security filing options available to you. You may want to consider running the maximization software available on this website in order to determine your best filing strategy.
