Need clarification on something we heard. My husband and I

Customer Question

Need clarification on something we heard. My husband and I will be retirement age 66 in 3 years and will start collecting our benefits. We heard that if we both work until age 67 we can each collect our own benefits plus I can collect 1/2 of my husbands. Is this true??

No. Anyone can collect only 1 benefit at a time.
There are file and suspend and spousal options.
I'll offer you a call to clarify because once you start you are locked in to certain things
