Customer Question

I will turn 68, and my wife will be 62 in November. we both want to start collecting our SS. I Plan on working a couple more yrs. I should get about $2600 per mo. my wife only $500, and is not working. should I file first and suspend, then let her file against mine later, how does that work?

It depends on priorities. When you say hers is $500, is that her benefit amount on her own record at 62 (discounted)? or is that her PIA (primary insurance amount)?
