Hello. My specialty is focusing on YOUR Financial needs. Financial Planner/Business Owner for 20 years. CPA,PFS,QFP,GMMA.
If you file and suspend she can collect 1/2 your benefits (minus the windfall provision deduction) .
She can only collect if you are collecting or if you file and suspend.
Then take yours (it will be larger) at age 70).
I'll also offer you a call to discuss.
PLEASE stay online till we are done.

All you need to do is accept my answer and we can have an unlimited discuss on the telephone.
Alternatively we can text back and forth but almost everyone likes the telephone better. Its easier and faster and just plain better.

Please note that I did NOT charge the average call price of 18. The cost is a flat 5.(the minimum).
