I have currently approximately...

I have currently approximately $2200.00 per month soc. sec. income. My wife has about $700 per month based on my earnings. At my oassing, will she receive my full benefit?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My wifw never worked to contribute to Social Security. She only taught for 4 years and has no other income except for what I provide. My basic question is: will she receive my full monthly Social Security benefit at my passing

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

I can't think of any other complication that would bear on this issue.

I hope you will live long enough and enjoy your benefits.

If you die - your wife will be eligible for social security benefits as a surviving spouse.

That will be 100% of your PIA - primary insurance amount.

Assuming that your wife will start benefits after her FRA - full retirement are.

Let me know if any clarification needed.

Ask Your Own Social Security Question

Please be aware - if you delayed your social security benefits belong your FRA and you are getting increased benefits because of that delay - that amount will NOT be included into your wife's spousal benefits.
