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
