I am 65 and have collected SS since I turned 62. My husband

I am 65 and have collected SS since I turned 62. My husband turns 66 (full retirement age) on 2/15/17 and would like to retire. Will I be able to collect off of him when he retires?

Social security question. Cannot seem to get an accurate

Social security question. Cannot seem to get an accurate answer. I am 63 years old. My full benefit at age 66(full retirement) would be $2600 per month. I have 2 minor children. If I retire now, by monthly benefit will be $2000 per month. Can you tell me how much in benefits each of my children would also receive if I retire now.? Secondly, when my oldest reaches 18 and no longer qualifies, would my benefit for my youngest increase? There is no spouse involved.
