I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
You can collect social security off your late husband as early as age 60
You can certainly collect his benefit again - you are not limited based on previous benefits
Oh. OK so can I collect retroactively for 60? and how do I go about doing
How many years has it been since you turned 60? You can only collect retroactive six months
5 years ago. Just hit the 65 mark this month.
I'm so sorry, but you cannot draw benefits retroactive 5 years
So how do I start the process? Just by calling S.S.?
Yes, you can start the process by calling social security, or visiting your local office
You will need your marriage certificate, your husband's death certificate, and your ID
Thank you, Megan! This is very helpful.
