My wife turns 62 in a month, I turn 63 in two months. At our full retirement age of 66, her monthly benefit is $882 but $665 at age 62. My full benefit at 66 is $2597. We don't need the money now, but the question is if she draws $665 at 62, then switches to her interest in my benefit at her age 66, what would her total benefit become at her age 66? If she doesn't draw anything next month and waits to draw on her interest in my benefit at age 66, does it change what she would receive? (No need to factor in COLA).

Usenet is not a chat room, as it is a public bulletin board. Post your
questions to this NG and you'll get a variety of answers many from
people here with considerable expertise. Also, if the information you
seek is not known, you'll get good advice as to where to go to get same.

We're a bunch of retirees here, most of whom are collection Social
Security and many have likely experienced the circumstances surrounding
your questions, and can give you very good first hand information.

Hey hello, One question...I recently started receiving my SS bennies in may of 2016. Friday of last week Oct 28, 2016, I called to have my check direct deposited. I was told that it would take two weeks to have that done...starting in December. However I would still receive my paper check for November. I usually receive my check on the 2nd of every month. Today is the third. Getting a bit nervous here. Should I visit the SS Office?
Thanks in advance, Ted

Yes, you can continue to work before and after the checks start.

Even if you earn more than the current $16,920 pre-FRA number, the
checks are reduced, not stopped.

See this SSA webpage for details:
https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/article/3739/what-happens-if-i-work-and-get-social-security-retirement-benefits

There is also an on-line calculator that will show you the reduction
effect, given your age, benefit and income numbers:

Its not dedicated to Social Security, but there are some very
knowledgeable people on that subject at
misc.invest.financial-plan

Most of the posters there are working professionals in the financial
planning business.

I have yet to see anything intelligent on the subject. As an
alternative to some cash or fixed income, maybe commodity ETFs and
REITs?

You don't have to find a chat room, just ask the questions in this
newsgroup, and you will get an ear full of opinions on the subject matter.

Hi, my question is a followed: is it possible for the local welfare office computer system to see if I got approved for ssi before I was notified from SSA? I get a small amount of food stamp, my caseworker called me today for a medical form she needs and she told me that she see that I had a begin date for ssdi and my stamps will be reduced. I never received a letter, call or anything from SSA. Does this sound possible tpbyou? Thank you

yea, it's possible because they have to know what you'll get before they send the letter out and it takes the letter a few days to get to your house. i used to get food stamps and I wouldn't receive a call, I would just get a letter but I signed up on DCF's website and I could see my results way before I got a letter in the mail. I know the website for florida but I don't know what state you're in so I couldn't tell you but a simple google search should work.

I see no reason why not. I thought 65 was the age when you can start SS.

Retirement benefits can start as early as age 62, but at a reduced
rate. See page 4 of https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10035.pdf

FYI, you should still start Medicare at 65, otherwise their are
penalties for late enrollment.

My name is Diane. I applied for Soc Security in 2017, September, same year I turned 62. I was working and currently still working. I was told they would hold Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan checks because I went over maximum. I was then told, since it is now 2018, I will have to wait another 5 months before I get a check. My question is, does SS benefits start all over at beginning of the year for those who still work? So confused.

SSA does review your benefits each year if you are still working. Do
you plan to quit working in 5 months ? If so, that is when payments
would start. If not, did they say why they would start in 5 months ?

You can read up on details here:
https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/whileworking.html
or here:

Given that you apparently have access to the Internet, you (or son)
can get and print your own Benefit Verification (also known as an
Award Letter) yourself.
