Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Your spouse will receive 1/2 of the benefit at your full retirement age. The benefits for your spouse do not include any delayed retirement credits you may receive. So the answer is she will not receive 1/2 of your benefits at age 70, it will be 1/2 of your benefits at age 66 for her spousal share.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer as it is the only way I will be compensated for my time by the site.
I see you have reviewed my answer, do you have any further questions? If not, please positively rate my answer if satisfied (there should be smiley faces or numbers from 1-5 next to my answer, a good or excellent rating would be fantastic) as that is the only way I will be compensated by the site for my work. This will not cost you anything extra and this extra step would be appreciated.
Any chance for a positive rating?
