Social Security Question:
Social Security Spouse Benefits
Social Security Answer:
I was glad to find your informative web site.
I turned 62 in January, and was told that I would draw my first spousal payment check this March...
My husband has been collecting Social Security Disability for several years now...We have several problems...He was 66 years-old, December 30th, 2008...But, SS has his age listed as 65 years-old...
They told me that they make typos sometimes too.
I got a copy of his birth certificate... it has the information of where he was born and parents' name...But, the child's name is not listed! They said we had to prove his real birthdate...He was never in the military and the first school he attended was demolished many years ago.
My husband has been working as a "watchman" for a company for five years now...and got a pay raise this past July... We were informed that he has made too much money and his checks will be stopped if it continues...We are waiting to hear from the Social Security Disability office...about how much money my husband will have to repay them...
My question is, if they stop his disability checks...Will I still collect my check?...or, will they both be stopped?
I've never worked enough to collect on my own.
We live in Georgia.
Thank-You for your time and I appreciate your help.

You have several problems to solve. Wifes benefits should be paid to you no matter what happens to your husband in this mess. The amount may be adjusted because they dont know whether he is 66 or 65. Did he get his drivers license at age 16? w hat age does his marriage certificate say he is? Did his parents mark his birth in a bible or was he baptised? Was his age listed on any of your childrens birth certs?
Do you have any insurance policies that list his birthdate? Does he pave a passport?
Look for anything that has his date of birth listed on it. What about his family doctor-
how far do those records go back? If he worked and went over the disability amt allowed, he can put in a waiver saying it isnt his fault. Why didn't he report it: Or did he report it and SS did nothing. If he tried to report it and SS didn't follow up on it, then it isnt his fault. Let me know what happens next. Try to get the age issue resolved and then ask for a waiver form. Get back to me......Carol
