Larry, I am collecting my late husband SS benefits. I delayed my SS pays. Now I will turn 70yrs old on August. I want to collect my SS benefits.
Can I know how much I will get.

Hi,

Yes, you could use our maximization software to calculate your retirement benefit rate, or you may be able to get that information directly from Social Security. Assuming that your own retirement benefit rate is higher than your survivor benefit rate, you'll almost certainly want to file for your own benefits effective with the month you turn age 70.

Best, Jerry
