I am at max retirement age and still working . My husband is deceased can I collect my survivor benefit and let my own benefit go till it maxes out. At this time I plan to keep working full time. Thanks for you help.

Yes, you can — but you have to be very careful about what is filed on your behalf. SS perpetrates something called the Widow’s Scam. I’m going to suggest you go to Amazon and read our new book: Social Security Horror Stories — and skip immediately to that chapter about widows. It could save you a fortune over your lifetime. There’s a link to the book on our new website.
