spouse benefit

August 13, 2013 by Guest

If I start drawing at age 66, what can my spouse draw turning 62?

Spousal benefit - spouse younger

August 13, 2013 by David Luhman

The answer depends on your spouse's work record. I assume you both were born between 1943 and 1954, and thus you both have a 'Full Retirement Age' (FRA) of 66.

Even if your spouse never worked under Social Security, your spouse may be able to get benefits if he or she is at least 62 years of age and you are receiving or eligible for retirement or disability benefits.

If your spouse is under FRA and qualifies on his or her own record, Social Security will pay that amount first. But if he or she also qualifies for a higher amount as a spouse, the spouse will get a combination of benefits that equals that higher amount.
