Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Social security benefits are not transferable, meaning only the original owner can get his or her benefits. However you may be eligible for benefits based on his records if higher than your own benefits. Were his benefits higher than your own benefits? At what age did you apply for your own benefits?
Because you applied early for your own benefits, your survivor benefits will also be reduced by about 25%. If 75% his are higher than what you are currently getting you can contact social security and ask to be switched to survivor benefits. But only social security can give you exact number.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
