Thanks, ***** ***** your question.

Unfortunately in this situation you are unable to get your husband's benefit - first, he would have had to drawn his own benefit. However, you drew your own benefit early. You would be unable at this point to switch to the spousal benefit. I wish I had better news for you.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
