I am new to this forum so I would like to say hello to everyone.
First a little background. I am a 64 years young female living in California. My husband passed away in 2003. About six months later I quit my full-time job and started drawing survivor benefits. The benefits from his social security amounted to being about $400 less than my monthly income at my full-time job, so I decided to work part-time. I am still working part-time to this day.
My question.....is there a way to get ALL of my survivor benefits in one lump sum?
