HelloAfter Friday, April 29, 2016 people who have not yet filed for Social Security benefits will no longer be able to use the program’s “file and suspend” rule. This claiming strategy has permitted one member of a married couple to file for Social Security, enabling a husband or wife to file for a spousal benefit.The spouse, meanwhile, could suspend his or her own retirement benefit, which then could grow while they wait to receive benefits later.
