My wife filed very late for receiving spouse benefits (half of my SS). The SS administrator said that she is entitled to a maximum of 7 months retroactive. She was fully eligible 28 months ago.

I am 67 and contribute at the maximum level. I plan to retire at 72 and will be making aprox. $250,000 at that point. My wife just turned 65 and is making aprox $70,000, and would retire at the same time as me. Should she start taking her benefits now? What happens to her benefit when we retire? What happens to my benefit from age 70 until 72?

I will be 70 in another week. I applied on line in April to

I will be 70 in another week. I applied on line in April to have my retirement benefit start when I'm 70. I hadn't realized that my wife was old enough to claim benefits on my record (she just turned 64), so I didn't do the file-and-suspend that I should have. SS tells me that she can claim back to the April data I first filed. I can't go back the whole six months since the file-and-suspend option expired at the end of April.Our present plan is for her to apply in the middle of July retroactive to April. Her claim on my record will be more than regular retirement on her record, since she is disabled and hasn't worked for quite a while.Are we missing something that would be a better strategy?
