Hello and and thank you for your question. For over 34 years, I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.

You have been doing your research and it has paid off. YES, this is the correct strategy and I only wish more people knew about it as the SSA does not publicize it. I wish you both well.

If he turns 66 in July does he still have time to register?

Absolutely. In fact you can register as early as 90 days before your birthday.
