    I worked for a major company for most of my life. During that time I also worked part time for the local police dept., how can I check now that they sent in my S.S.payments ? (the police dept). Who can I check with, it all happened many years ago and it seems I should be getting a lot more money than I am. I was employed by both of them for 25 years.

    I am going to be 65 in August 2018 but since my husband is still working, I do not want to claim my benefits until age 70. What do I do now so that I am not penalized later?

    I have to agree with the valid points you make in your article because I see things like you. Additionally, your content is interesting and really good reading material. Thank you for sharing your talent.
