Customer Question

Just to recap.. I can start collecting spousal benefits when I turn 62 with no penalty or payback by my husband and no penalty or payback on MY benefits when I start to take them at whatever age I choose -- 66 or 70?? If so, How do I get started?

You can apply:

If your spouse is already receiving benefits when you apply, or if you and your spouse apply at the same time, we will also check your eligibility for benefits as a spouse. If you qualify, your application will also automatically serve as a request for spousal benefits.
