My wife passed away in 2012 can I receive a portion of her SS?
Can widow survivors benefits be retro active? I received survivor benefits just before I turned 62. I was made aware that I qualified while at the SS office checking on my own SS benefits.
So I signed up for the survivor benefits.. And have since started getting my own benefits at 64.
I missed out on nearly 18 months of survivor benefits…
My wife died of pancreatic cancer in 2012. Can I file for benefits now? Is there a time limit?
My wife died 16years ago at the age of 53. I want to know if I can drawn her social security benefits. I'm currently 62 and still working.
My wife passed on February 14, 2021 and she was collecting Social Security Disability, I did receive her last Social Security deposit just last month June.
My question is what benefits am I entitled to?
She was 64 when she passed and I was 59 just turned 60 on 7/10.
I turn 60 in two months, can I collect survivor benefits on my late wifes SS/benefit and continue to work my fulltime job up until I turn 66 ? I am guessing that there is a penalty (reduced amount) for filling at the early age of 60 and also for being a fulltime wage earner while collecting benefits. Is there a realistic approach to my situation? Thanks for your time
If you die before claiming retirements, how would the survivor retirement benefit be calcuated? Assuming the surviving spouse had no other benefits and claimed at the survivors full retirement age. Would it be based on the FRA ie full retirement age , of the spouse who pre deceased? Would it be based upon the maximum benefit at age 70?
My wife died last year. She was receiving SSDI. I'm 57 now.
At age 60 I can begin survivors benefits (at a reduced 71.5% rate). Would the amount of my first payment be increased by the COLA amounts for each of the four years between her death and then?
Hi Scott. I'm sorry for your loss. Yes, your future widower's rate would include credit for all Social Security cost of living increases that occur after your wife's death.
