Customer Question

In 1999 I retired from CSX railroad. At that time both my wife and began collecting a pension from Railroad Retirement. She receives $1456 per month. She recently received a letter from Social Security stating that her benefits under SS would be $1672 per month. Should she switch to SS?

Hi. Great Question. If this is her social security account - she could collect on both - however, her Social Security would be at a reduction from the $1,672. I would check with Social Security to confirm. I am not sure her age - but, if she waits until age 70, her social security benefits would be even higher.

Thank you. ***** would be at a reduction from the $1,672. I would check with Social Security to confirm how much. I would definitely, though, have her check, since she probably could get additional benefits.

Social Security can be contacted at(###) ###-####/p>

Or she can go in-person -

Office Locator - https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp

For her application, she can go online at https://www.ssa.gov/onlineservices/.

Let me know if you have any questions.

The good part about it - since she is 77, she will have a higher Social Security benefit.
