Hi Terry , Ive been told by friends that I can collect half of my deceased ex husbands social security at 66.5 years of age until I turn 70 and then I can collect the maximum of mine. Is this true ? Please advise .Thank you so much.

Were you married at least 10 years? If so, you are entitled to claim on his Social Security. But it is not that simple to set up the optimum claiming strategy.
I suggest you go to and pay the $39 to get the best personalized advice on what to do when.
