Will My SS Be Reduced If I Receive Any Of My Husband's Pension?

I receive ss from the public sector. My husband worked both public and private sectors. He receives reduced ss and a fireman's pension. I will receive 40% of his pension. Will my ss be reduced if I receive any of his pension?

Hi,

No. Receipt of a spousal or survivor benefit from a pension program that's based on your spouse's work and earnings would have no effect on your Social Security benefits.
