I am 66 1/2 and started taking my Social security last September.

Customer Question

I am 66 1/2 and started taking my Social security last September. My husband just turned 66 in Feb. of this year and asked fr his benefits and then suspended them. Then I went in to get spousal benefits but instead of stopping mine and getting half of his, they just gave me a percentage of his on top of mine. If I go in and stop mine they say I will ave to pay back everything they have payed me so far, then I reapply for half of his. Then will they pay me from back t when I started? And then mine will continue to grow till I am 70?

I disagree. You should be able to suspend yours and collect 1/2 of his (spousal benefits).
Please let me know if you understand. I still think a call would help. I believe returning to a local office and asking for a supervisor will help get this resolved.
Please let me know you understand. Thanks.
