I just turned 65 in July. I have been receiving disability

Customer Question

I just turned 65 in July. I have been receiving disability since 7/2013 due to a stroke. My husband died suddenly in November 2014. We have both been paying S.S. All of our lives, since the age of 16. Do I have to lose my disability now ? If I could I probably would have continued to work at least part time.i am told I will only receive $54.00 from hos SS.

Hi again. PDtax here.
Your social security benefits should be the same amount as your social security disability payment when the disability benefit changes to regular social security when you reach full retirement age at age 66.
The spousal benefit might be larger than your benefit, and if so, the premium will be paid in addition to your regular social security benefit.
Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.

what do you mean by premium. ?
Expert:  PDtax replied 1 year ago.
Spousal benefits are paid as an add-on to your benefit. If your monthly benefit is $855, but your spousal benefit would be $960, the $105 premium is added to your benefit based on your work record.
