Will My Son's Benefits Be Cut When I Retire?

I am a 61 year old man and wondering how my retirement in a few years will affect my Social Security benefits and my disabled son's social security payments.

Needless to say, money was tight these past 20+ years. My son's current benefits are broken down into three parts. 1. As SSI. 2. As Social Security and 3.

Will My Daughter Get Higher Benefits If I Wait Until Age 70 To Start Drawing?

My daughter has been disabled since a child. She gets SSI, MediCal and Regional Center services. After 4 years she got a low income apartment and needs to work I haven't worked since last October and turn 66 August 2018 .I was told to wait to 70 to file so her 50% benefit would be greater. However today I was told her benefit is fixed to my age 66 benefit even if I wait to 70 and I should consider filing so she can get benefits from my retirement benefits. Should she stay on SSI or should I file so she gets more. If she gets married how will it affect SSI versus SS .

How Would My Marriage Affect Our Finances?

Hi Larry, I'm a 58 year old male with cerebral palsy. I've never held a job andI'm drawing Social Security on my deceased father's account. I also receive a very minimal amount of S.S.I. as well as being on the Medicaid Waiver Program. I'm going to marry my caregiver of nearly 18 years.

How Will We Survive If SSA Takes Away My Benefits?

so I'm in my early 20s, disabled receiving SSDI based on retired parent's earnings record. Planning to get married someone who's not working, who's marrying me to help take care of me but will not have income for long time to come since it's someone from foreign country, not educated and no understanding of English. So if SSA takes away my only source of income then how are we both going to survive? Even if she might be able to work in the future, after long years of adjustment; point is what happens during our current years or even months for this matter??

Is There A Federal Register Reference We Could Cite In Our Appeal?

My son has Rubenstein Taybi syndrome, which was diagnosed at birth. He is clearly disabled. We were able to get him job working for YouTube (actually the contractor for food service is Bon Appetite) as a helper in the cafeteria. He was their first disabled adult employee. He works 4 days a week, 4 hours a day. We have tried to keep his monthly income below $1130, and pain in a deformed ankle keeps him from working any longer than 16 hours a week.

Will I Be Able To Get Benefits From Both Of My Parents' Records?

I have been disabled since i was 21. I am now 46 and have been receiving benefits from my mothers disability for years. Recently i received a letter saying i needed to file on my deceased fathers social security.I filed and was told that i was qualified to receive benefits from him. Will i be able to continue to receive from both parents.


No, if you qualify for benefits on both of your parents' records, you can only be paid the higher of the 2 benefit rates.

Will My Son's Benefit Rate Increase Now That My Wife Has Switched To Her Own Record?

My mentally ill disabled son, since age 19, receives the following from Social Security:
$226.37 SSI
$442.00 SSDI, own record
$510.00 SSDI, father's (my) record

My wife was also receiving a retirement benefit of $1264 from my record, but she has just switched to her own record.

1. Will my son now automatically receive a higher SSDI, the 50% of my FRA benefit ($1264)?
2. Will this amount be in addition to his own $442 SSDI?

Thank you.
