Social Security

0

Q. I’m receiving my husband’s Cvil Service monthly annuity, which he elected me to receive. He only had 25 quarters of private-sector work. During his federal service, he did not pay into Social Security. Will I be able to collect his federal annuity and my full Social Security because it was my own work, or will my Social Security be reduced?

A. You’ll be able to receive a CSRS survivor annuity and your own unreduced Social Security benefit.
