My spouse was collecting Social security when he died in 2012. His monthly benefit at that time was$2425. If I begin receiving his benefit this year when i turn 64 will the COLA increases between then and now apply to my 82.5%?
How much of my benefit does my wife receive if I die
Hello I became disabled 2008 at age of 54.and was married over 40 yrs. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Applied for social security disability at age 62 and passed away at age 64.they said I could only collect 25% as a widow. I received 932 in benefits and 400 for widow. His monthly was 1683.monthly why would I not receive more benefits from him. When he passed 2 days b4 end of month. I lost his benefits income. On the 3rd.I lost our house and vehicles.had to move in with my daughter. Not enough coming in to cover the house and car payments.
II CLAIM AT 70 AND MY WIFE CLAIMS 2 YEARS EARLY. IF I DIE WILL SHE GET FULL SURVIVOUR BENIFITS
Hi. If your wife is at least full retirement age (FRA) when she claims survivor benefits, she'd be eligible for the higher of a) your full benefit rate including your delayed retirement credits, or b) her own benefit rate. That would be true even if she starts drawing her own benefits and/or spousal benefits prior to her FRA.
If I do not file for any Retirement Benefits from SSA, and should die before filing, how are my spouses benefits calculated? My FRA benefit is 1630. per month. I am 65, my spouse is 44, and would only qualify for a spousal benefit at her FRA, even i dont file for benefits? How would that amount be calculated?
When my husband passed away suddenly in 02, we had been together for years but only been married 9 months. When he passed his only surviving daughter of course received his benefits. Then she commuted suicide in 09. Can I now receive his benefits?

First thank you again for what you do. I would gladly have paid for your responses and thoughts. (Jerry and Larry). I have shared your site and software with several family members and friends.
My friend lost her husband who was a high income earner, whereas she was a stay at home mother with no education past high school. Unfortunately she wasn't left much for herself due to some bad investment decisions by her husband. She fell in love a few years after her husband passed and remarried in her 50s. She did not know she would lose her deceased husband's social security benefit if she remarried.
I plan to file for widow benefits first when i reach my full FRA. I was born in June 1956. I will be 66 in June of 2022. My full FRA for my benefits is 66 and 4 months. Is it true i can file for widow benefit and star receiving benefits at age 66 (4 months earlier) without the penalty of having $1 deduct if i make over 18,960. I plan to keep working until 67 - 68. I don't want to loss 4 months of benefits if they are available without penalty.
I have a common-law marriage am I eligible in Texas for my spouse's social security after he passes away when I'm eligible for Social Security
