My husband is 70 years old and our adopted son is 16 years old. Our son is getting Social Security benefits based on my husband's work record. My son wants to get a part-time job while he is in school. I was wondering if his earnings would at any point disqualify him for the Social Security benefits.
I was married to my first husband for 14 years, until he died. I got married again for another 18 years, until the second husband's death. A few months before I turned 60 I married for a third time. Now, approaching age 65, I'm wondering if I can get Social Security benefits from any of my husbands.
If I'm currently drawing Social Security disability benefits and have both Medicare and Medicaid, can I still get all these benefits if I move to Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, or the Mariana Islands?
My mother, who is 79, recently moved out of her home and into an apartment closer to me so I can help care for her. She receives both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. When her house sells, will her benefits stop until all the money is gone? Does she need to report it to someone?
Can My Ex and I Remarry in Order to Make Social Security's 10-Year Marriage Requirement for Benefits?
I was married for nine years but now I'm divorced from my ex. Social Security says you have to be married at least 10 years in order to receive benefits on a former spouse’s Social Security record, meaning that we're short one year. If we were to get remarried for a year or more, would that count as at least 10 years?
My father was killed in 1965. My mother remarried in 1984. Is she entitled to my father's Social Security benefits? She is 83 years old.
My father is very ill and may have to be placed in a residential home or long-term psychiatric facility. Will my mother lose his pension and Social Security checks? Without them she will not be able to afford her home, as her own Social Security benefit is only about $500 a month.

I am 65 1/2 years old, and as a homemaker I have never been employed. Am I eligible for some Social Security benefits while my 65-year-old husband is still employed?
