Ask Terry Questions Social Security Benefits

Social Security Benefits

By Terry Savage on February 29, 2024 | Wild Card

My sister is 65 years old and she is a widow. Her husband worked for the railroad. She worked from 18 to 55 years. Social security said she only receives her husband’s railroad pension and not her own social security benefits as well. Is this true?

Terry Says

No. She should receive the larger of the two. Immediately go to Pay the $39. They will tell her what she SHOULD be getting.
And please write back and let me know how this turns out!
