I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
It is not possible for you to file and suspend until you reach age 66. And based on new law which Obama just signed into law last week, file and suspend will be eliminated as of May 1, 2016.
Your wife will still be able to apply for a spouse benefit though as soon as you start your own benefit.
Paying her as a consultant, withholding taxes and doing it right would allow you to ensure that she gets the last 4 credits she needs---and it can be done in the next month if you want.
Social security no longer gives credits based on quarters but based on income earned during any time of the calendar year. The amount of earnings required for a quarter of coverage (QC) in 2015 is $1,220. So if your wife can earn income and pay taxes on $4,880 or more in 2015, then she will have earned the quarter necessary for her to qualify for her own retirement benefit.
