Customer Question

My wife filed and suspended about a year age and I have been receiving spousal benefits since that time. She has now going to take her full retirement. Does this mean that I will no longer get the spousal and if not, how long can I still receive it?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Your spousal benefits are your own benefits based on the spouse's records. Your spouse will receive her own benefits. Her applying for her own benefits will not change yours in anyway. You can always keep your benefits (your own or spousal) or switch to your own at 70 if you want.
