This video discusses when to take Social Security Retirement Benefits for the common case where a husband had higher earnings than the wife.
The strategy discussed here is to have the wife take reduced benefits early, while having the husband delay his receipt of retirement benefits.
The key here is that when the husband passes away first (a common occurrence), the wife will see a step up from her reduced benefits to her spouse's higher benefit level.
This video shows how to increase your retirement benefits even after you've decided to take payments.
Let's say you took early (reduced) Social Security retirement benefits starting at age 62. Now you want higher benefits. Can you get it? Sure! Just file Form 521 - Request for Withdrawal of Application.
