    BruceM, thanks for the reply. I am now confident that my wife will receive my current benefit in its entirety when I pass on. That was the reason that I waited until age 70 to start receiving it in the first place.

    By the way, I did take advantage of the spousal benefits when I reached my full retirement age of 66. I received half of my wife’s benefit until I reached age 70 and then I took my full benefit.

    I appreciate you taking the time to respond to this post.

    Alan, that’s exactly why I waited until age 70 to take my benefit. I wanted to leave my wife with the highest benefit that I possibly could. I thank you for your response and I am certain that you are correct. I have a call in to my local SS for a second opinion from them. I believe they will concur with what you said. Thanks for your assistance, very much appreciated.

    Kaneohe, I put in a call to my local SS office to speak to a different rep for a second opinion. Hopefully, someone will call me back.

    Alan, my 70th birthday was in August of this year, so the benefit started in September. So you are saying that my wife should receive my age 70 benefits, not my age 66 benefit as the rep indicated?

    Kaneohe, I am hoping to live for a few more years before my wife has to address this. I will seek a second or third opinion either from the Social Security 800 number or someone in my local office. I was hoping to get a definitive answer on this forum. Thanks for your input.
