I'm a federal retiree under CSRS with a survivor's benefit for my wife. My started drawing her social security at age 64 or 65; she was eligible for social security at 62. Will she be able to both her social security and CSRS survivor's benefits after my death?


Yes. Drawing a CSRS survivor pension would have no adverse affect on your wife's Social Security benefits.
