Hi Larry. I was a teacher in California for 15 years and currently self employed, age 62. I have been collecting STRS, the teacher’s retirement since age 55. My husband, age 75, passed way 6 months ago. Does the SS WEP rule affect widow’s benefits? I plan to work at least to age 67, 70 if I remain in good health but not sure when to claim the widow’s benefits. It’s all very confusing. I have tried your software but unable to input the STRS numbers. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thank you.
I'm sorry for your loss.
