Title: Social Security
Post by: ladybug on February 24, 2018, 08:38:22 AM
I was just wondering if a widow has to pay back to the social security, do they work with  you.

I work and also receive widow benefits.   I just got my taxes done and now I  think I won't be getting it next year.   I may even have to pay back.

I am a bit lost.   Any thoughts.   Thanks

I suggest finding a financial planner who knows about social security. Find one that is a fiduciary (means he cannot do anything in his practice that is not for your best interest) There are a lot of ins and outs with finances and since you work and are bringing in your own income, whatever small amount you might have to pay the planner would be well worth it for you. Social security is one place where a mistake can be quite costly.

Good luck and I hope you get only good news.
