Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
For him to collect benefits based on your records you must apply for your benefits first. If he apply at 62 all his benefits he is or will be eligible for will be permanently reduced by about 25 - 30%. At 62 he will automatically receive higher of his own or about 32% of yours.
Here are couple of links to figure out the exact percentage:
His own: https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/quickcalc/early_late.html
and spousal: https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/quickcalc/spouse.html
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
