Am I Able To Collect Any Back Social Security On My Own Record?
My spouse died in 2020 when we both were age 63 (both born in 1956), and we were both working. I continued and still continue to work and am now age 67. I collected nothing from Social Security (we both qualified for benefits) until my full age of 66 as a survivor, when I began the larger benefit, the survivor benefit. I never collected on my own record. I am trying to get an appointment to see if my benefit would ever grow as large as the survivor benefit (at the time of filing, they told me likely it wouldn't). Am I able to collect any "back" Social Security on my own record?
