WH Cornerstone: Uncovering Social Security Secrets with Marcia Mantell - Shared screen with speaker view
Feel free to put any questions in the chat as we go along.
Surviving spouses cannot earn more than $18,000 if they claim benefits at 60.
My husband was FRA when he died and I am currently 55. If I collect survivor benefits at 60, will they be reduced?
Can spousal benefit change down the road. I will apply for ss before my husband....he has the higher benefit.
My question is about benefit for a disabled adult child who has two parents who will each claim SS on their own record (not spousal benefit)... what benefit % can they get? When / what age can they claim? Can they claim on one parent who starts at a lower age and then switch to other parent who waits to claim at 70?
If claiming for benefits at 60, how soon should you advise social security?
what if higher earning spouse dies early at 60. lower spouse is 67, started collecting at 62. when is older spouse elig tonget higher spouses earnings?
I had a similar follow up to my question…if I claim survivor benefits at 60 and my benefit would be higher if I wait until my FRA and my benefit is higher at that time can I then switch to my individual benefit?
but larger earning spouse was only 60?
Social security doesn’t tell you that survivor benefits will be reduced if you claim at 60.
Thanks for your program!
