I can't get s straight answer......my husband is already collecting ssa off his record. When I retire do I also collect my full benefit based upon my record? In other words do we continue to receive 2 checks?

Yes, you will each receive your own retirement benefit. You may also be eligible for a spouse's benefit off of your husband's record before you file for your retirement benefit.
