Hi,...He can start his social security as soon as age 62. The file and suspend rule for married couples, that's changing today likely doesn't affect you if neither is age 66 yet....Last fall, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 changed the rules to eliminate two popular Social Security claiming strategies for married couples: File-and-Suspend, and Restricted Application...There is one primary difference between the old and the new rules:...If you DO qualify by turning 66 by Apr 29th 2016 and suspend under the old rules, while your benefit is in suspense, spouses and other auxiliaries can still collect benefits based on your work record....if you suspend under the new rules, your spouse will be ineligible to claim spousal benefits while your benefit is in suspense
