Unmarried heterosexual couple
We understand that for married couples one spouse, when (s)he reaches retirement age, can claim spousal benefits initially and wait until age 70 and then claim his or her own benefits at that time. This is true as long as the couple has been married for at least 10 years
We have lived together for 23 years in Texas. We do meet the Texas law for a common law marriage. If I seek to claim spousal benefits for myself based on my spouse's account, what information will be needed to make sure that my claim is successful?
