Hi, there have been scam articles and emails going around. The SS fund is not terminating. Rather, other things are happening. 1) Anyone that wants to suspend his own benefits after 4/30, will also be suspending his dependent's benefits paid on his own record. That didn't used to occur. 2) Anyway under 62 by the end of 2016, will not have the option of filing a "restricted" application for ONLY spousal benefits, once they are of full retirement age. Basically, an application for either one's own or a spousal will be deemed to also be an application for the other, if eligible for the other, and the highest amount will be paid.
