I am entitled to half my ex's pension benefits through a Federal Employee Pension Program once he retires. He will not collect Social Security as he did not pay into this system. I am age 62 in March 2018. I would like to begin collecting SS then which will be around $1100 per month.
When my ex retires will MY SS of $1100 a month be reduced by 2/3 due to me being eligible to recive half his pension for the 22 years we were married?
Non-Covered Pension - WEP / GPO
I am 64 years of age and am a federal csrsoffset employee with 23 years of service . I contacted social security and have gotten three different estimates regarding my benefits when I apply for them at the end of 2017. I am trying to get my monthly earnings from both sources as to know what my budget would be. Social security estimates received are $811.00 and $ 1109.00 And one for $1229.00 and a printout saying 87% of earnings , I font know which estimate to believe . thanks for any or a correct input.
My employer opted out of social security many years ago for a pension plan that is invested in the stock market. I have worked there for 37 years. I am getting closer to retirement age (within next 10 years) and am not sure how to handle retirement. I lost a significant amount of money years ago and thusly do not have a large amount in my plan <$200,000.00. Can I draw the spouse's portion of social security and draw out quarterly or semi annual amounts from my pension if I roll it over into something. Or is there a certain age where I can have both? Thank you.
My WEP offset seems to be rising faster than my monthly SS benefit.
I am trying to decide to start taking benefits in 2017 or to wait until 2018.
Do you know the amount or where I can find the Maximum Monthly Amount my Benefit
May Be Reduced Because Of The Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) for 2018?
Thank you, Tom
How does Social Security calculate the WEP reduction based on no greater than 1/2 of the portion of the monthly pension that is attributed to the non-covered work time? I had to retire earlier than planned due to a cancer diagnosis. My non-covered time is just a fraction of my total time that is included in my pension and it is part-time work (less than 1/2 time). It is calculated as a portion of my pension by the state agency that issued the pension at 13.5% non-covered. However, SSA reduced my pension by more than 50%.
I do not have 40 quarters (and retired on WEP) so i applied on my husband. i am over 67 and so is my husband and he is drawing $380+- with WEP. I was told my check would be under $100 a month and therefore they did not have to pay me . ??? not that i had not met the other requirements.
I am a state employee in a non social security state and also work part time in the private sector. In a couple of years when I retire, my social security earnings will exceed 30 years with about 15 years of substantial earnings. How will this affect my social security benefit? My wifes social when she retires will be greater than mine as she will have 30+ years of substantial SS earnings. Will her SS be reduced after my death when she receives my survivor benefit (2/3 of my pension)?
I am 89 my husband dies at 94 I have never had social security but he did. I get a retirement from working for government it is udner 1000 dollars a month. I was told at SS center I will not get 100 percent of my husbands SS because I make retirement from government. He said it will lessen. I so not get ss, but governement retirement. I do not understand if he is correct. he was in an hurry it was the end of the day.
Thank you Doris
I'm sorry for your loss.
My Husband passed, im 60 I work for public school dept. I was planning to retire in January. I have a retirement plan and wold be getting a lesser amount at age 60. I was told if I get a pension and collect my husband ss I would receive only a reduced rate of $350.00 from the 71.5 % of 1,900. I do not understand this If he was here I would be ok. I cant survive on just my week to week pay and thought his social security for widow would have helped me. If I coutinue workin I was told I will also get a reduction because I make too much.
Thank you for this service -
My husband has earned soc. security as well as been a community college teacher subject to windfall. I have worked for 40 years and have earned SS benefits. He has chosen the pension option which provides that the pension comes to me when he passes.
Is my Soc.Security benefit amount mpacted when that happens or is it immune other than from SS Taxes?
thank you very much for your help.
