Can I Claim U.S. Social Security Benefits While Living In The U.K.?

Category: 

I am a UK citizen with Green Card (resident alien status) who has worked in the US for 20 years in local government. My wife is a US citizen. Eventually we would like to return to the UK and I realize this may cause my US status to change to non-resident alien. Will I be eligible to claim US social security at 66 while living in the UK? Thank you.

How Does The New Law Affect Me And My Husband?

I started collecting SS benefits at 66, but I am and will continue to work till I am 70 or next year 2019 (God willing enjoying health). My husband is already collecting SS (he is 73 ). How does this new law benefits me or us? Should I be collecting SS benefits from my husband's account too? or is it by law the claim of SS benefits (of spouses) upon the death of either or one ?

How Much Could My Children And I Receive?

Category: 

My husband is in Federal jail. I have 3 children at age 12 , 13 and 16. I am a stay at home mom. My husband turned to 65 in Jan 2017. Now it is 2018 and I just found out my children and I can apply for my husband's social security benefit . We lost our health insurance and everything after my husband went to jail. Right now we have medical assistance. My question is if I and my 3 children apply for my husband's social security benefit, will we lose medical assistance ? Is that worth it to do it?
