My husband is disabled and will turn 66 on October 18, 2021. If I turn 62, 11days before his disability changes, can I still be eligible to receive benefits? Also, I was teaching and paying into the Texas Retirement System, but I had to drain my retirement account due to medical issues. I have worked in the private sector before teaching , so I know what my SSI will be @67. To fill in the gap, I substitute teach but I can’t pay into TRS. I hope you can give me a definitive answer, because the SSI Blue Book leaves a lot to be desired
Im planning on taking my social security at 70 since my wife is 4 years younger and higher survivor benefits. My wife does have retirement benefits but less than half of mine. If she takes her benefits before her fra can she take the spousal later at her fra or is deemed to be taking both. Thanks
I'm 58 and on ssd for lung cancer can I retire at 62 or will I lose some of my money i receive now
Hi. If I understand your question correctly, you're receiving Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits and you want to know if you can collect Social Security retirement benefits at age 62. You can't collect both SSDI and Social Security retirement benefits at the same time. You could switch from SSDI to Social Security retirement benefits at age 62, but if you do so your monthly rate would then be reduced for age.
At my full retirement age will i be able to collect my social security and 50% of my exes? Basically can I collect both or just 1?
I am 67 years old and got my first payment for April in May of last year. I turned 66 on January 28th of 2020 and was eligible at that time. I went to the SS office as I had had some problems with my 2017 tax return as the numbers contributed to SS were more than they should have been. The IRS instructed me to get an updated W2 or a letter from this employer. I got the letter and the IRS excepted it. When I went to SS, twice two different offices I was told I needed an amended W2.
When I turned 65 I used my spousal option so I could get my full SS earnings when I turn 70. When do I need to contact SSA to make sure there is no lapse and the increase is applied correctly? I will be 70 in March 2022. Thank you!
I started getting SS benefits when I retired at 62. I will be 68 in December. Is it true you can somehow "reapply" to get your benefits increased since you are now 6 years older?
My husband started getting social security at his full retirement age. I am 62 and plan to work until 70. Can I claim social security on his account. I understand I will not get 50% of his benefit because I am not at FRA. My question is if I claim tbe benefit now but work until 70, will I get my eligible benefit at the age of 70 or will get the beneft as if I retired at 62.
Following up on my question earlier today: "Can I Claim Retroactive Spousal Benefits Based On A Restricted Application And Later Claim My Own Benefits Retroactively?" (Thenk you for that answer)
Would my strategy work if I filed in two different month rather than the same month (June and July). I would then pay back my Dec. HSA contribution so I'm clear on the 6 month rule.
If I call SS on July 1 to apply for my benefits to begin that same month, will they?
I turned 70 1/3/21. My spouse turned 66 summer of '20 and started taking her SS workers benefit. I contributed to an HSA thru 2020 and so need to wait until 7/1/21 to begin taking SS benefits b/c Medicare starts 6 mos before enrollment in order to finish 2020 contributions to my HSA. To get my max due benefit, can I file a restricted appl. for spousal benefits only on 7/1 get 6 mos retroactive spousal pymts - and then apply for my benefits (a week or two later?) and get 6 mos retroactive payments of mine? I have received two opposite responses when from different SS employees.
