TheStreet readers ask about how to get the biggest Social Security checks possible. Robert Powell gets answers from the experts.
Today, Covisum's president, Joe Elsasser, CFP® helped answer this question:
"My wife died two years ago at age 53. I am currently 53. At the time, I was told that I would receive 80% of her Social Security when I reached retirement age in addition to my Social Security if I did not remarry. Is this true? We both worked long enough to qualify for Social Security at retirement age."
