Megan C :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

Megan C :

Your spouse can draw 1/2 of your benefit, provided that they are full retirement age or older. If they are also 64 then they will draw approximately 40% of your benefit, because it is reduced for drawing benefits early


what if spouse is only 62?

Megan C :

Then they will get about 35% of your amount
