How much will your wife be able to draw from your Social Security in retirement?
Yes: If the ex-husband is currently collecting and they have been married for at least 10 years prior to the divorce. Also, if the husband has not yet filed a claim, the ex-wi…fe may collect if they were married for at least 10 years prior to the divorce and has been finally divorced for 2 years.
If you draw disability Social Security at the age of 58 when will you draw Social Security retirement benefits?
Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits at the same rate of pay when the person reaches full retirement age. There is no increa…se in benefits or additional payment at retirement, only a change in administrative status and loss of earned-income restrictions. For people born before 1943, full retirement age is 65; for those born between 1943 and 1954, the age is 66; for those born between 1955 and 1960 and later, the age gradually increases to 67.
Yes, if you have earned at least 40 work credits and apply for your own retirement benefits, your wife is eligible to draw an additional 50% in benefits based on your work rec…ord if she is at least 62 years old. An ex-spouse who was married at least 10 years may also draw benefits on your work record. Neither payment reduces the amount of your entitlement. If you have reached full retirement age and wish to continue working after your wife retires, you may apply for benefits and then have them suspended temporarily. This allows you to continue increasing your own benefit amount until age 70.
There is no limit on earned income once you reach full retirement age. You will continue receiving your full benefit regardless of your work situation. If you were born befo…re 1943, full retirement age is 65; between 1943 and 1954, retirement age is 66; between 1955 and 1960, retirement age gradually increases to 67.
typically you can start when you hit 62, but it is a lesser amount than if you wait longer, say 65 or 70.
The answer depends on your individual circumstances; however, if you begin drawing retirement benefits at age 62, your check will be approximately 75% of what you would receiv…e at full retirement age (most likely 66). This will be your base rate for the remainder of your retirement.
No, and yes. You cannot draw unemployment benefits AND retire as you have to be actively seeking full time employment, for one thing. However, you CAN receive Social Security …benefits whether you are unemployed OR retired. Those 2 considerations do not affect receipt of Social Security.
ZERO your husbands disability income has to do with his inability to work and has nothing to do with you in life or death.
Age 73 is well beyond what Social Security considers full retirement age. There is no limit to how much income you can earn while continuing to draw benefits. You will not be …penalized.
The earnings limit for 2010 for people below full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954) is $14,160. If you retire at age 6…4, you can earn any amount before retirement without incurring a penalty; however, once you retire, you can only earn $1,180 per month. If you earn more than the income limit, SSA will deduct $1.00 for every extra $2.00 earned. Your benefit check will be withheld beginning in January of the following year until the overage is completely offset. This can result in no Social Security income for a number of months, depending on how far you went over the limit.

Every year, I get a statement... the total monthly draw will depend on how much you've earned over the total life of your work history. At least, that's how it currently works… in the US...
This would happen if you are your NORMAL RETIREMENT AGE (NRA) or FULL RETIREMENT AGE (FRA). You can go to the SSA.gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE and use the searc…h box for What are the benefit amounts a spouse may be entitled to receive? A spouse receives one-half of the retired worker's full benefit unless the spouse begins collecting benefits before full retirement age. In that case, the amount of the spouse's benefit is reduced by a percentage based on the number of months before he/she reaches full retirement age. For example, based on the full retirement age of 66, if a spouse begins collecting benefits: * At 65, the benefit amount would be about 46 percent of the retired worker's full benefit; * At age 64, it would be about 42 percent; * At age 63, 37.5 percent; and * At age 62, 35 percent. However, if a spouse is taking care of a child who is either under age 16 or disabled and receiving Social Security benefits, a spouse gets full (one-half) benefits, regardless of age. If you are eligible for both your own retirement benefit and for benefits as a spouse, we always pay your own benefit first. If your benefit as a spouse is higher than your retirement benefit, you'll receive a combination of benefits equaling the higher spouse's benefit.
Yes, she can. He can also with his pension.
No, the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is age 62. While you may be able to retire at age 55, you will need to have other resources to draw from u…ntil you are eligible for Social Security. Retiring at age 55 is difficult for most people. Not only are not you not eligible for Social Security for many more years, but in general, you can't access your retirement accounts until you reach age 59 1/2. Also, you don't qualify for Medicare until age 65. All of these combined make it very difficult for the average person to retire at 55. If you are retiring because of disability and qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you can collect those before age 62.
