Is There Any Way To Make Sure You're Getting Proper SS Credits And Benefits?

Category: 

Is there ANY way to make sure you are getting ALL the SS benefit you & your employer paid into. when I went to the Pre- SS interview, a Gentleman gave me my expected benefits, that was the preceding November, when I went for the actual interview a woman told me what I was to receive BUT it was a lot LESS, so I asked to see the Gentleman, I was denied that & told this was it, good bye. I left and a week later contacted my Congresswoman, she said she would look into it & NEVER got back to me, same with my Assembly person.

Is There Any Advantage To Remain In The U.S. From A Social Security Perspective?

Category: 

I am a US Citizen who also lived in Canada for 27 years. I am 69 years old and am collecting both Social Security and CPP. My husband is a Canadian Citizen (62 years old) and worked in Canada for 37 years. He is working in the US now on a Green Card and has been paying social security (maximum payments for 6 1/2 years.) We are considering moving back to Canada but do not know how this will affect his government pension earnings (Social Security and CPP).

Why Would I Be Due Unpaid Benefits?

Category: 

I have been told that I have "unpaid bebifits" starting in 2010. I do not know how to find this information or how to apply for it. Why isn't this paid to me already? Thank you fo your help.

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I have no idea to what you may be referring. If you we're told by Social Security that you are eligible for unpaid benefits, then I would suggest that you contact them for an explanation. Otherwise, you should always use caution in order to avoid being defrauded by scammers.

Can I Collect My Social Security Now?

Can I collect my social security, I'm disabled 55 years old and got denied for disability

Hi,

No. The only way that you can collect Social Security benefits based on your own work record prior to age 62 is if you qualify for disability benefits (SSDI). If you have an impairment that prevents you from working, you may want to consider filing an appeal (https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10041.pdf) on the disallowance of your SSDI claim or reapply.
