Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.
Her claiming early discounts the amount of her benefit fit purposes of what you get as a spousal benefit. If her FRA (full retirement benefit) at age 66 is $1500, her age 64 benefit might be $1275. Your spousal benefit might be $638.
Her benefit would continue to grow until she chooses to draw a benefit. File and suspend does NOT reduce her future benefit.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
