Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
If your husband is currently collecting or applied and suspended his benefits, you can apply for social security benefits at 62 but you will receive your own or spousal, whichever are higher. You will not have a choice. Also, if you apply at 62, all your current and future benefits you may be eligible for will be permanently reduced.
You're welcome. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
