Survivor Benefits


  • Federal Benefits Q&A

    Question: My agency is trying to force me out. I will be 61 in October and have 31 years in December. If I retire on January 1 how much can I expect to receive? Can I apply for disability retirement at the same time and would my benefit go up when I reach full retirement? Do I have to take a survivor annuity if I want my husband to be able to keep his insurance should I pass away? View More

And if so, will the SS benefit be adequate to pay for Medicare in perpetuity? View More
