zgriner is COMPLETELY WRONG regarding Social Security payments to widows. COMPLETELY WRONG. In a traditional couple where the wife never worked outside the home, the couple will receive 150% of what the husband would get if single. If the wife has worked outside the home and would get more than 50% of the husband's benefit on her own, then they get that. Once the husband dies, the widow gets 100% of the husband's benefits.Go to www.ssa.gov for details.I have to say I get extremely angry when people try to spread lies and misconceptions about Social Security benefits. We all know the law may change, and I think demographics will force it to. In the meantime, it is just contemptible to disseminate falsehoods.
