Will My Social Security Be Subject To WEP If I Receive A Survivor Benefit From My Husband's Government Pension Plan?

I worked for more than 30 years contributing to social security system. My husband, on the other hand, worked for a job contributing to social security previously before he worked for a government for 20 years with a pension plan. We are both preparing to file for retirement. My husbands social security is subjected to WEP. My question is because I am entitled for a spousal survivor benefit from his government pension, will my SOCIAL SECURITY be subject to WEP when i receive the spousal benefit after he passes? Thank you.

Hi,

Is It True That I Should Be Eligible For Benefits From My Deceased Husband's Record?

I worked for the Federal government for almost 33 years and was in the old retirement system, CSRS. I had also worked in the SS system for my 40 quarters - thus earning a SS benefit. SS decided that because I had an annuity from the gov't, any SS I earned would be decreased by 2/3. When I retired in 2011, I applied for SS. I inquired about benefits under my deceased husband's acct, and was told because we were not married the "required 10 year" - I wasn't eligible under his benefits.

Will My Divorced Widow's Benefits Be Impacted By My Pension From The School System?

I am planning to take divorced widow's benefits at age 60 and then my own retirement benefit at age 70.
At age 65, I also have a miniscule pension from the school system I worked for briefly (paid into PERA and not into Social Security). I understand my own retirement benefit which I plan to take at 70 will be WEPed but by no more than 50% of my pension amount. I have less than 20 years of substantial earnings.
My deceased ex-spouse never worked for any employer that did not withhold social security tax. He had 28 years of substantial earnings.
