My husband retired at age 66 was going to continue to work. He died after 2 checks. I am also on SS at 62 which is just a very small amount. I am now getting survivor benefits but is much less than his full SS. The SS office is telling me because I am now 63 I collect his benefits based on my age. I find this unfair to be penalized and can't understand why I am not getting the full amount.
I'm sorry for your loss.
