Widows Who Work
Widows and widowers have a hard enough time navigating life after the passing of a spouse. Did you know that if a widow or widower marries again, they could impact their social security benefits? Did you know a widow or widower who works while claiming Social Security may have implications due to his or her income?
I don’t claim to have all the answers, but resources are my key.
Here is a very helpful (and lengthy resource) from the Social Security Administration.
I also always advise my clients to contact the Social Security Administration Office directly to speak with an agent. I have found they are very helpful and knowledgeable. This also takes any guesswork out of financial planning correctly.
