Your requested professional is unavailable, but I would be more than happy to assist you today. How are you doing?
You can draw the higher of your own benefit, or your spousal benefit. You can draw one of the two benefits.
If the widow's benefit is the highest benefit that you are eligible for, then there is no way to increase your social security income.
Each person only gets one benefit.
Please let me know if you have heard about any ways to increase your benefits. There are a lot of advertisements recently that say that you can increase your social security benefit dramatically, but in reality those methods only work for a select few individuals that don't know they can draw a spousal benefit.
