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?

Q. I recently turned 62. Four years ago, I had my disability retirement approved by the United States Postal Service. Unfortunately, Social Security did not approve my disability and I didn’t receive any monthly benefit until I turned 62 and that was at the non-disability dollar rate. Does my USPS disability retirement monthly annuity increase to what a voluntary immediate retirement is? And, since I turned 62 several months ago, will the Office of Personnel Management process a lump sum payment to cover those several months?
