Hi...So sorry, but the change in strategies that was disallowed really only applied those JUST signing up....And possibly for a couple between full retirement age of 66 and and age 70 do somethings differently....But for you to have waited UNTIL age 70 (GrEAT job by the way) you've done all you can do....There is one primary difference between the old and the new rules: if someone suspends under the new rules, the spouse will be ineligible to claim spousal benefits while your benefit is in suspense....Under the old rules if someone suspended,, while their benefit was in suspense, spouses and other auxiliaries could still collect benefits based on the other other spouses work record....I'll attach a chart that provides a good overview, but after age 70 there's nothing that be done've already GOTTEN that 8% benefit growth per waiting until age 70. Again, excellent job!...
