I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
Each of the professional people would be entitled to their own full benefit
The family maximum is only per wage earner. If there are two wage earners in the family they are each entitled to their own maximum benefit
So, for example if a man has a benefit of $1,000 and he has a wife and daughter, the family maximum on his earning record would be $1,500-$1,800
However, if the man's wife also has her own benefit worth $1,000 they can draw $2,000 plus whatever benefit was available for the daughter
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
Have I provided you with "excellent service" today?
Yes. Thanks. Good. Thought the max only applied to non-working dependents. Was correct. thank you. Have a good night.
