Hi: My name is***** retired from job June 1, 2015. I started receiving my social security check in August, 2015. My mom passed away in August 1, 2015. She was 93 years old. We share apartment. She was receiving her social security benefits. I am handicap. I have Cerebral Palsy. I want to know if I can receive my mom social security payment along with my being that I have a disability to handle the cost of living on my own?

I am 64 and collect ssdi. I also work part time. I am not able to work over 20 hours per week or my disability benefits will be terminated. I feel I should wait until i am 65 and then try to collect retirement benefits and still work especially since the minimum wage rate is going up and I will hardly be able to work 10 hours a week. I should explain that I was an engineer and because of tremors I could not handle stress any more and now work for the Salvation Army under much less stress - but the SSA is calling the work "substantial gainful employment."

I have recently (2 years ago) relocated from Pennsylvania to California where the costs of living are higher. I am 67 1/2 years old and my husband is deceased. I receive SS benefits based on his earnings which were higher than mine. Am I also eligible to apply for SS based on my own earnings in addition to what I receive now? Do benefits amounts differ based on state of residency? Thank you.Ann Marie
My dad turns 95 in August. He receives approximately $3,000View more social security questions
my dad turns 95 in August. He receives approximately $3,000 each month in social security. Is there any way to increase this amount? I keep thinking the system should pay him more now while he is alive and still able to enjoy it. I know that's probably just wishful thinking. What do you say?
