Customer Question

Sorry I had to leave before my question was answered. I am 65 and will be 66 in May. My wife is 61 and will be 62 in 4.5 months. I am currently not drawing s.s. yet but had planned on drawing june 1, my wife's s.s. is much higher than mine and had heard from a friend that I can suspend mine until later and draw from her s.s.. I have talked with local s.s. office and they did not think I can draw on her's what are my options?

Good evening,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.

Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.

Either way, whether I call you or not, in order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. When does your wife plan to begin to take her benefit?

2. When you say her benefit is $750 a month more than yours---at what age are you referring to for your wife?

Thanks in advance,

Answer 1 We are flexible on her drawing but would prefer to draw after she turns 62 but not locked in which ever would be best.
Answer 2 Her increased amount was at 66, at 62 $1766 or $630 a month less

I am self employed and will continue to draw a salary
Expert:  LawTalk replied 7 months ago.

Would you like me to call you to go over all of these issues?


Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no, unless too complicated
Expert:  LawTalk replied 7 months ago.

It is complex, and some of the things that you are want to do are entirely inconsistent with one another, and not possible.

I can;t offer any cheaper call to you and made the offer because I know that this is very important to you.

It is your choice.

Can't call until tomorrow how can I contact you in morning?
Expert:  LawTalk replied 7 months ago.

Just come back to this thread and I will be here to assist you. I can call you pretty much any time during the work day.


Expert:  LawTalk replied 7 months ago.

Good morning,

If you are ready for me to call you, then just accept the call offer and provide me with your phone number.
