Yes, each person should have their own will, although there is certainly no law against having interlocking wills. It is somewhat rare for both parties in a marriage to die at… the same instant, meaning the will of one of them will be administered before the will of the other.
Can you receive Social Security benefits when you retire if you already receive veteran disability benefits?
Yes, if you have the right number of quarters in and are at least 65 or blind or disables.
Yes, you can. You served your country and you deserve to reap the benefits from what you worked so hard at. You get your social security benefits to because you contributed to… the social security system for your working adult life. Therefore, you receive both benefits.

If nothing is done to change Social Security what can a 26-year-old individual in 2006 expect to receive in retirement benefits from the program?
Benefits for all retirees could be cut by twenty-six percent and continue to be reduced every year thereafter by the year 2040.

Social Security retirement benefits are calculated for each individual, based on his or her own earnings, assuming both parties worked and accumulated the minimum 40 credits e…ach to qualify. Spouses who were homemakers or disabled may draw against the working spouse's record, and typically receive 32.5 - 50% of the spouse's monthly benefit. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346 (or $4,692 for a couple). This assumes the person retires in 2010 at age 66, and has made the maximum FICA contribution every year since age 21, an unusual scenario. The average monthly payment at the beginning of 2010 was $1,164.00. Benefits are calculated based on the number of years worked, your 35 highest income-earning years, and the age at which you retire, as well as the total amount of all benefits paid and the total number of people receiving benefits. It would be impossible for us to calculate this number for you, and also impossible to predict any changes in your income or made to government policy between now and when you retire. You can get a rough estimate of projected retirement income using the SSA benefits calculator, accessible via Sources and Related Links, below.
Yes, they are separate and unconnected programs.
