She has been my Caregiver since 2012... If it does go retroactively, Can you tell me what it would be after 72 months of benefits??? Thank You, ***** ***** Sample... SSG/Disabled ARNG/US Army

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. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Can my wife also be my Caregiver with the SSA?

Yes - if you are getting social security benefits - you spouse is eligible for her own benefits OR fro spousal benefits based on your working record.

She will qualify starting age 62.

She still may work - but as long as she is below her FRA - full retirement age - her earning is limited in 2018 by $17,040 before benefits are affected.

?? Second Question, how much does a Caregiver make from the SSA???

The SSA doesn't pay to the caregiver - these payments may be made by the VA or by Medicaid.

That is depends on hours approved as required based on your health condition.

Does the benefits pay retroactively???

wages for caregiver are NOT paid retroactively.

Social security benefit smay be paid retroactively up to 12 months.
