  1. Hello,
    I will turn age 66 this July/2020.
    I do not plan on retiring for another year nor taking SS benefits until I do retire July/2021.
    My husband will turn age 66 this November/2020. He is no longer working nor taking SS benefits.
    1. Can my husband start withdrawing SS benefits from my SS in July?
    2.All of it or partial?
    3. When he turns age 66 in November, he will start withdrawing his SS benefits – so then if he has been drawing on mine, does that cease?

  2. My husband turns 70 Jan. 8. When is the earliest he can get his maximum social security benefit? He hasn’t started social security payments yet.

  3. I no longer live in the US due to the fact that I have developed a medical condition and have no Medicare insurance because am not able to afford.

    Am I going to be able to receive these Economic Impact allowance? Even NOT resident in the US.?

  4. I got an email said call 866-226-2306 is this a SS number they said it was based in Jamaica Queens
    just checking for scams

    • Hi John: Thanks for checking in with us. Generally, we will only contact you if you have requested a call or have ongoing business with us. Recently, scams — misleading victims into making cash or gift card payments to avoid arrest for Social Security number problems — have skyrocketed. Our employees will never threaten you for information or promise a benefit in exchange for personal information or money. To see if Social Security sent the letter, you would need to call your local office. Please look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information. Please be aware that our call wait times are longer than normal. We hope this information helps.

  6. I was approved for Social Security Benefits on April 18, 2020. I applied for benefits as of April 1, 2020 and was told that I would receive benefits as of October 2019, when I was eligible (I was eligible as of July 2019, but SS will only go back as far as 6 months. At the time of approval, the SS worker told me that he would be able to tell me how much my monthly payment would be, but for some reason (he was working from home) the system would not allow him too. I was wondering when will I receive my first payment? And how much?

  7. I applied online for benefits on 5/8/20. I received an email saying to call 866-226-2306. I’ve been trying for more than a week – that # is always busy. Do you have an alternative for me?
