I was only married to my husband a few months before he passed, can I collect his social security?
My wife passed away in November of last year and I received a letter from Social Security about widowers benefits. I just turned 60 in January and I still currently work full time (self-employed). I am curious if it is a good idea to start collecting those benefits now or wait until I am 62. Also, on the form SSA-10 it asks me to put in the appropriate monthly limit in which I will not earn more then x amount of dollars. How do I calculate this amount, is it based off the yearly earnings limit of $19,560? If so, I cannot earn more than $1,630 a month??
I had a hard time understanding the person I talked to on the phone regarding Survivors Benefits.
My wife died in 2017 and I turn 60 on April 10th. My phone appointment is 4/12 and first check I would receive is in June.
Wife wife was on disability for several years.
Are the Payments retroactive for survivors benefits retroactive to April 10th? In other words when I turn 60?
Hi Larry I applied for my wife social security. We are still married and she died. Social security has made a decision. Is it possible that I will get her benefits
I have a government pension and my spouse will receive a benefit if I predecease him. Will he receive my unreduced SS or my reduced SS.
Both are higher than his own.
I earn 100K year and 61 years old. Wife recently died and was receiving SS benefits. Am I entitled to spousal survivor benefits?
I am 61 wanting to file in April after i turn 62. My husband worked for 30 years as a Fireman and also paid into SS on his off day jobs. He passed away in 2015. I retired From my job in 215 worked for the same company for 28 years and did not pay into SS because of my retirement Texas County Retirement District System.
Will I be able to collect Spousal Benefits?
Im 59, my wife passed away 15 years ago . Can I pick up her S.S. before I get mine. She was 7 years older than me.
I was born in 1954 and I am planning to take my SS benefit when I turn 70. I have recently retired. My wife was born in 1957 and she wishes to take her own SS benefit. She has retired also. Does her drawing of her own SS benefit early reduce her survival benefit in any way? Thanks for your help.
My wife passed away in 2012 can I receive a portion of her SS?
