social security is not impacted by other retirements. they are separate. Your military retirement will not affect or change your wife's retirement from the railroad. you will each have your own retirement and at age 62 or older you each will also have your own social security. however, your wife many not have any input to social security benefits if she has not paid into social security during her work span. best to check with social security to see where she stands with social security
