I am 65 years old and turning 66 in May. My husband has been deceased since 2007. I am a school teacher in Florida and worked for 13 years. My husbands Social Security would be much more than mine . I am still going to work hopefully until I am 69. I am in a drop program. When I spoke to someone from Social Security, I explained that I would be taking my husbands benefits at 66. When I no longer work, I will be receiving a small pension.
Non-Covered Pension - WEP / GPO
My wife collects a federal pension and does not qualify for social security. She will be 66 in January 2018. Can she collect a spousal benefit from me and about how much would she receive. I retired at 62 in July 2015. Thank You so very much. Wayne
My wife passed away before I turned 60. I remarried one day after I turned 60 so I would be eligible to file for survivor benefits. My former wife paid into Social Security for 30 years. My new wife is a retired teacher and receives a teacher's pension and will never receive Social Security since her union opted out of Social Security. My understanding is that her teacher's pension will not impact the amount I receive in survivor benefits nor in retirement benefits when I turn 70 and file for my social security benefit. Is that correct?
I am born, lived and worked nearly all my live in Germany. I moved to the USA in 2010 after marrying an US citizen. Now I am 64 years old. I have only worked 5 years part-time in the USA. Due to that fact and special regulations/laws in Germany I will be eligible for full retirement on 1st March 2017. Since about 2 years I am getting as well spouse's benefits from my husbands Social Security. (He is already retired.) I will not get any US Social Security benefits on my own account .
I am drawing a pension from Canada. Part of it is for work for Canadian employers (CPP). And part of it is a benefit based on years of residence in Canada (OAS).
I have elected to defer my Social Security benefit for a couple years, when I turn 70. I know I am subject to the WEP then, although by then I will have 27 years of substantial contributions to SS.
My wife is a teacher in Connecticut covered by the State Teachers Retirement Plan and does not pay into Social Security. Maximize My Social Security shows that she will receive a survivor's benefit if I die first. I have paid Social Security Tax since 1975 and have substantial earnings since 1979. A financial planner told us that if I die first, my wife will not receive a survivor's benefit because she only has 9 years of substantial earning under Social Security and is subject to WEP and GPO. Why does Maximize My Social Security show the survivor's benefit for my wife?
My husband is 71 and waited until 70 to claim SS. I am 66 and have not claimed. I was told I could claim Spousal Benefits now then at 70, decide whether to file for my own or stay on Spousal. We went to SS office that said NO because I draw a pension from my teaching career where no SS was taken out. Is this correct?
I received social security (disability) under my husband record who is deceased. I have not worked since 2005 but I am not retired and plan to do so this year under the pension plan. Will my income be reduced, I am 64.
I will be 62 in November. I can begin drawing teacher retirement in 3 years and want to know if I can begin drawing Social Security at 62. How will this affect my teacher retirement?
