He is eligible for a spousal benefit at age 62.

There is an exception if he is caring for a child.

The benefit requires that he apply for his own benefits, and a spousal benefit. He would receive the higher amount of the two.

Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated to rate my assistance. I'm PDtax.
