I will be 70 in another week. I applied on line in April to

I will be 70 in another week. I applied on line in April to have my retirement benefit start when I'm 70. I hadn't realized that my wife was old enough to claim benefits on my record (she just turned 64), so I didn't do the file-and-suspend that I should have. SS tells me that she can claim back to the April data I first filed. I can't go back the whole six months since the file-and-suspend option expired at the end of April.Our present plan is for her to apply in the middle of July retroactive to April. Her claim on my record will be more than regular retirement on her record, since she is disabled and hasn't worked for quite a while.Are we missing something that would be a better strategy?

My mom is 93 and. of course, living on Social Security. My dad died about 10 years ago at the age of 84. They were married for about 30 years or so and then got divorced. They were divorced for well over two years at the time of his passing. My mom only collects her own Social Security. Is she eligible for higher benefits as a surviving spouse? Can she receive retroactive benefits from the time of his death until the current time? Your help is appreciated

My ex wife were legally married years. We divorced after 18

my ex wife were legally married for 18 years. We divorced after 18 years. She remarried. When she died February 2014 her new husband reported her death and the length of time she was married to me. The SSA did not contact me to inform me about my survivor benefits. When I applied for survivor benefits in March 2016, I was told that can only get benefits going back six months from the date of my application.QX Am I not entitled to benefits going back to the date of her death?

Doug, I was just viewing other questions of customers. I noticed a question from a disabled women of 62 requesting an answer of filing for disability.I too have been disabled for the last 20 years from a medical condition and can not work. But I have not worked for 29 years.I thought it was too late to file for disability. Is it possible that I could file for SSDI? And then take SSI at 66?

I need to understand the start-stop-start social security

I need to understand the start-stop-start social security strategy-especially in view of all the recent changes. I am female age 68 (dob 01/07/1948) and started my benefits at age 62. My husband is younger-age 63 (DOB 11/14/52). He is not collecting any SS benefits. Is it possible to stop my ss benefits-repay them- and restart at age 70 to get the maximum benefit? I am in excellent heath and longevity runs in my family. If this strategy makes sense and the option is still available, what do I need to do?
