Olivia, you are collecting a social security benefit? And if so, it is on your own work record?

My husband and I were both on SS and when he passed away SS told me I would stay on my SS and they took a portion of
His and added it to mine to bring me up to his total, I had never heard of this happening. A few years later I took a temporary
Jod and worked a little over a year and half which they ended crediting my account but took the portion they credited to
Me and put it back in my husband account. I question SS about this as I felt Iearnedthat increase and certainly could have used that small increase. I still think they did me wrong. Sorry I really can't be spending to much money on this, that's why
I am concerned as to what's happening to Social Security. Hope you can help me. ThankYou. Olivia Hayes

Hey Olivia, thank you for your patience, just wanted you to know that I got this post because I am merely checking in after the family has been put to bed. But I wanted to check back to see if you had the opportunity to respond. I can happily say that I don't see the new law will effect you at all. It has some drastic effects on those preparing to make SS retirement claims, mostly those that are not yet full retirement age who have living dependents at the time they may consider applying for their own retirement. But if you don't have such, based on the above, you should be clear - no negative ramifications.
