Full question: Hi Martha, I’ve been collecting Survivor benefits since I was 66. I’ll be turning 70 in October. How do I find out if my own benefits at 70 will be higher than my deceased spouse’s?
You should contact your local Social Security office to verify if you are eligible for a higher amount of your own retirement benefits than the survivor benefit amount you are currently collecting.
