Customer Question

My wife currently receives S.S.
I just turned 66, my wife will turn 66 next month.
I want to file and suspend and have my wife collect spousal benefits when she turns 66.
Social Security told use she cannot collect spousal benefits since she all ready receives S.S. Is this true?

Your wife might be eligible for an increase for a spousal benefit if the payor is higher than her existing benefit. Her existing claim for benefits on her own record does not preclude applying for a spousal benefit.

Payout, not payor. Spell check on my phone.
