Thank you for the information.

The new Social Security law essentially deals with two strategies some retirees were using to maximize their benefits namely: file and suspend and restricted spousal application.

File and suspend deals with when both husband and wife have reached their full retirement age. One would file and suspend his benefits so that the other would apply for spousal benefits only. Then the other spouse would apply for benefits when he reaches age 70. This would maximize their benefits. Under the new law, this loophole has been closed. So, when a spouse files and suspends, all benefits would be suspended preventing his spouse from applying under his earnings.

The other one is restricted spousal application where one spouse can elect just to apply for spousal benefits only and then apply for her own benefits later. This would no longer be allowed for any one turning age 62 or older after December 31, 2015.

So, the new law does not affect you and there is nothing for you to do.

Threlkeld from the Dallas area. , My wife and I are
My wife and I are trying to determine our best “course of action” especially with the introduction of H.R. 1314. I am 65 and have already made the mistake of filing for benefits early at age 62 having lost my job. My wife is now 64 and was intending to take advantage of “file and suspend” after reaching her full retirement age of 66. This would have allowed her benefits to continue accumulating the 8% appreciation until she reached the age of 70. Our understanding was that she could apply for and collect 50% of my benefits until then to supplement our family's income. … read more
