The World War II veteran part does not play a factor in this situation but if he predeceases you, you will be able to file for survivor benefit. Since you have passed full retirement age, you will receive 100% of his benefit if he predeceases you. If either of you have a disability or qualify for supplement income help (SSI) you might be able to increase your income. For SSI you could not have more than $3000 in assets (not all assets are counted). Disability would only be if it is higher than your current SS retirement payment.
