What age can a woman draw social security if her husband is deceased?
My sister-in-law was told she can start drawing from my brother's social security when she turns 60 years old.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
No. You need to report his death to Social Security. If you have been cashing the checks for a while, think about it. Reporting the death and dealing with it now is FAR better… than letting it go. It will only get more difficult to deal with as time goes on. You can always make an anonymous call to Social Security just to get information and to put your mind at ease. It's not likely that you will get in trouble if you have done something inadvertently and desire to make things right. You can get Widow's benefits, and there are some things you can do to get benefits even before your full retirement age which I'm presuming is 66. It appears that you can opt for your own benefits of record, or widow's benefits, and there may be ways to switch from one to the other. Check the link for some material that might help.

Can you draw disability social security on deceased husband social security and on your own social security?
No. If you do then the social security people might end up having you tossed in goal.
You will need his birth certificate, his social security card, his employment income prior to his death and his death certificate. You also will need to show proof of your mar…riage and if you were still married when he died or divorced. Since not all social security offices are the same in every state, it would be advisable to call before you file to make sure you have all the information and paperwork that you need. It will save you another trip.
There is no gender discrimination for Social Security benefits. If you or a spouse have earned the 40 required work credits, you can begin drawing Social Security benefits at …age 62. Under certain circumstances, you may be eligible for benefits calculated on a spouse's work record (if applicable) if one-half the spouse's benefit is greater than the amount you qualify for on your own work record. Be aware that filing for Social Security benefits before full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954) reduces the cash benefit to as little as 75% of the amount you would receive by waiting until full retirement age. Also be aware that, while you can collect cash benefits at age 62, you must still wait until age 65 to enroll in Medicare.
Does your ex-husband have to be deceased in order to draw from his Social Security even though he is remarried?
No. You are eligible to draw retirement benefits against a living ex-spouse's work record if you are at least 62 years old, were married 10 years or more, are not currently ma…rried, and your ex-spouse is entitled to receive benefits. If you ex-spouse is not entitled to receive benefits, you may still be able to entitled to compensation if, in addition to the requirements mentioned above, your ex-spouse is at least 62 years old and you have been divorced for two or more consecutive years.
If your husband and you both draw Social Security and he dies can you draw a portion of his Social Security?
Social Security rules and regulations, and legislation, vary according to the area in which you live and use these services. You will need to contact your local …Social Security office to learn how you will be affected financially by your husband's death and also by other changes which might affect your allowances in some way. You don't need to give personal detals about yourself to the officer with whom you speak and can, of course, withold your caller ID. Making an enquiry anonymously won't affect in any way the advice you'll be given, but do be aware you must be absolutely honest when giving detals about your situation: if you don't tell the exact truth the advice you receive is worthless.
Not until she her self reaches age 60 unless she has children at home under age 18. There is always the possibilities she could draw Disability if unable to work. Some women g…et catch in what we call that danger gap of when their husband is older then them and dies. When he dies if she is not age 60 she gets nothing no matter what he was drawing if he was retired unless as stated about the children at home yet. I guess thats why my insurance man when I was young it was important to have good life insurance to protect your wife in the event you died. I see what he means now when I see allot of ladies in their late 50's working hard jobs or flipping burgers just to make ends meet until they reach age 60 to draw on their spouse. Some really dont look to the future on this or save incase this happens for example a stay at home mom with no outside the home working experience and they have lived a really great life since he had an above average job. If they didnt save or have insurance on him then the world can cave in for a woman. Hope this helps in some way. The younger a person gets insurance the cheaper it is and course before something is detected medically by allot of young people dont think about tomorrow alone 30-40 years from now.
Yes, if you were married for at least 10 yrs. you can draw your deceased ex-husband's social security, but there are some stipulations. If your ex-husband died at or after his… full retirement age & you are at full retirement age when he died , then you can collect 100%. Other than that, only a % of his social security can you get. You can call SS & ask them to send you the booklet that explains it.
Yes, a widow or widower can draw reduced survivors' benefits at age 60. In order to receive the full amount, you would have to wait until full retirement age (65 for people bo…rn before 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954) to file.
It depends. When a spouse becomes deceased, the larger SS check continues. So if "Joe's" SS check is 600 and "Mary's" is 900. Then Joe will receive the 900 and no longer… receive the 600. The spouse will also receive a one time check for $255.
She can get a widows' benefit at age 60
Most widows are eligible to receive benefits for a period of time from Social Security when their husband dies. You should also be eligible to receive the death benefit paymen…t from them, which is only $250 I believe. Every situation is different though and it is the Social Security Administration's call on these matters. You can find out some more information on their website at socialsecurity.gov and locate an area office, to contact for any more questions you may have.
Your deceased husband received Social Security Disability can you receive Social Security at age 60 on his record?
Yes, a widow or widower can draw reduced survivors' benefits at age 60, even if the spouse's source of income was SSDI. In order to receive the full amount, you would have to …wait until normal retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954) to file.
Whether or not you have worked during your lifetime and earned Social Security, you may qualify for benefits on a spouse's record. This is the case even if you are divorced or… widowed. As with regular Social Security benefits, you will qualify beginning at age 62 (you may qualify earlier for survivor benefits, which is explained below). Typically, the amount you receive is reduced the earlier you start collecting before full retirement age. So when you and your spouse apply matters. Here's how it works. If You Do Not Qualify for Benefits on Your Own If you did not work enough in your life to qualify for Social Security benefits on your own, you could get one half of your spouse's full retirement benefit once you reach full retirement age, and you will qualify for your spouse's Medicare at age 65. This does not affect the amount your spouse receives. You can begin collecting spousal benefits at age 62, if your spouse has applied for benefits at that point. The amount of your benefit is reduced based on the number of months until you will reach full retirement age. Say your full retirement age is 66. If you begin collecting spousal benefits:
If you can, I'm retiring.
