Can I File For Divorced Widow's Benefits Now?

Jul 30 2016 - 10:00pm

I am 67 and 5 months and am working full time. My ex husband (we were married for over 10 years and although he remarried, he was not married to his second wife for more than 10 years) died in 2008 at the age of 60. Can I file for spousal benefits now and then file for my own benefits at 70 1/2? My earnings exceeded his. Does my current income change what I can do? If after using your software I'm still not sure what/how to file, does your additional service (social security expert review) help me with this? Thanks

Karen,
Yes, you can file for divorced widow's benefit now and delay your retirement benefit until you're 70, Your current income doesn't adversely affect your benefits since you are over 66. If you're still not sure what to do after using MaximizeMySocialSecurity an Expert Review can answer all of your questions.

Thanks,
Mike
