I am divorced. I was told that I could quality for some of my x's SS benefits, if this is correct when can I do this? I have heard various answers: I can but only after he has passed, I can but I have to wait until I am a certain age, or both I have to wait after he has passed and I have to be a certain age. Also I have heard that if I do qualify that the amount I get will be based on the age I start receiving it. Also will I be able to collect both of our SS $ or only one?JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated!

My adult son is disabled and has been since prior to the age

my adult son is disabled and has been since prior to the age of 18. he is now 25 years old. he has drawn on my SS since the age of 18 or 19, approx 835 month. my wife starting drawing on my SS when she turned 65 (2 years ago) at approx $1800 month. SS has recently informed her that that my disabled son who is now 25 and my wife must split my wifes benefit of $1,800 between them. She now receives approximately $950 month rather than $1,800 and he receives slightly more approx $875 month. Is it normal that a wife and a disabled adult so would be required to split the benefit?? or Should the both receive full benefits?JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?Customer: not sue, do you require additinal information? i am 68 and elected to defer draw until age 70.

I recently discovered that my old tax accountant never filed

I recently discovered that my old tax accountant never filed W2 or Forms 941 from 2002-2013. Because of that when SS determined I was totally disabled I receive no disability payments. I rectified the mistake the accountant made by filing all the old 941 forms and generated W-2 forms and paid the back taxes owed per year. Now the question : The IRS applied the payments made to the 941 forms to only back taxes owed for 2004. I declared bankruptcy 6 months ago but am still waiting on confirmation. Are they allowed to apply the money paid like that? and how will it affect my SS disability.
