Customer Question

Husband passed away Oct. 2013 retired military 30 yrs .Iam receiving surviors benefits. we owned his mothers home for 10 years. so she could live there and we paid the taxes and insurance . When he passed I could afford to paid the taxes so I sold the house this last Feb. will I lose my 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?
