I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
What the 1.5 times your benefit max means is that you could have the benefit for up to 3 children, because each child would get 1/2 of your benefit.
It does not mean anything about the number of years you may draw a benefit.
Do you have any further questions about this? If not, please rate my response "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
The internet SS info also says that the maximum benefit is $2500. I am not sure what that means. Does the child draw amount push me over the $2500 amount. My estimate is now about $2000 per month.
The maximum benefit is the max that you can draw, not your family combined total.
So, the maximum benefit you alone could draw is $2,500.
It does not include the family
