Good morning,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What is your present age?

2. Are you married, divorced, widowed or single?

3. If married, what is your spouse's age and do they collect social security already?

Doug
