Hello. My specialty is focusing on YOUR Financial needs. Financial Planner/Business Owner for 20 years. CPA,PFS,QFP,GMMA.
In order for you to collect on his there are several rules. He must be collecting or dead. Your age is a factor. Etc. depending on your situation you might not even qualify yet or ever. If you would like to get a custom answer I will offer you a call. Please let me know.
Otherwise we can do it here but there are many questions. It is easier on the phone

Once he applies you can request 1/2 if what he gets but depending on ages there may be a reduction of full benefits
