Collecting social security

Does anyone know if a wife can collect on their husband’s ss if husband is over 70 and wife is 65? Husband is already collecting ss benefits.

no i can’t help you hope some one can good luck

If you don’t already you may wish to consider establishing an account on the Social Security website; they have questionnaires that may provide your scenario and help you in your decision. In regards to your specific question - I believe there was a specific year (ie. Age) cut off in regards to the scenario that you are suggesting. Again, your best bet is the website.

Yes, make an appointment and talk to the people at social security, they will set you straight.

Yes, go to the source, make an apt at social security and they will give you the answers to your questions. If need be bring a notebook and write down your possibilities that will best help you.
