Social Security question
I think I know the answer but want to double check:
If my mother receives let's say $500.00 per month social security and father receives $800.00 (made up amounts, not sure what they get)... If he died first, would she get his $800.00? Thanks -
Somehow, I remember someone telling me that if your spouse had been receiving more than you and died, you would get his - but of course, not in combination with yours. Is that right?
