I am 65 and drawing survivor ship from my wife’s SS. I have remarried and it is my understanding if I draw the survivor ship until age 70 and then if I die my current wife would be able to draw my survivor ship at a higher rate. Is this true?
My mother passed away in the US when I was 13 in 2001. My father was not and still isn’t living in the US and I was bounced round to different family members that helped raise me as a child. I was never adopted and technically was a ward of the state. Life has been hard and I just recently found out about death benefits which I believe I may be entitled to. Do you have any advise for me to claim these benefits? Any help is greatly appreciated.
My spouse just turned 62, is 8 years younger than I, and is requesting her benefit now. Her benefit will be deemed. If I die before my wife reaches FRA, will she be forced to take the survivor benefit based on her age, since she already is receiving a benefit? Or can she wait until her FRA to get the survivor benefits?
My husband passed away and was receiving SSI at the time I don't receive anything do I qualify for any thing from him we had no kids and I'm 38
Hi. I'm sorry for your loss. If your husband was receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) then you wouldn't be eligible for any benefits from that program. SSI is a needs based benefit that only pays eligible individuals, not spouses or survivors.
Hello my father recentally passed away and was a self employed laborer. My mother a lifelong homemaker is now left with no income and is wanting to collect my fathers survicor benefits as he does have the 40 points required by SSI. However my parents do owe back taxes. Is my mother entitled to any survivor benefits now or not till the back taxes are paid in full?
I work full time, making approx $37,000. My husband worked full time with an annual salary of $86,000 + per diem
we have a 13 yr old daughter. My husband passed away Jully 30th and i am trying to determine what the monthly benefit will be in order to determine what things I can afford to keep
I was awarded a reinstatement of my mother's survivor benefit because my 16 yr old is disabled. Will I be awarded back pay from the month it stopped?
Hi. Yes, assuming that you had your child in your care for the entire time that your benefits were suspended, and provided that your child was determined to have been disabled all of that time.
Can my step mother receive my deceased father's SS benefits if they were "married" in a non-legally binding church ceremony 11 years ago? She is also an Oregon PERS recipient.
Thank you in advance!
My children’s father died 4 years ago! He wasn’t working a full time job. My daughter qualified for social security because she was only 13. My son being that he just turned 18 and was going to college full time , was not eligible! A case worker also suggested that I apply for spousal sosial security , yet when I mentioned it to the next case worker she laughed and said no, you don’t qualify! And that was that! Did I qualify for social security or not.
I was married for 23 years been divorced for three years. My ex-husband died. He was receiving disability Social Security benefits. Will either be allowed to still receive his Social Security survivor benefits? Right now I am only 48. I do have children with him that are currently in college. Would any of us receive benefits.?
