Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. There are no additional social security benefits that will be canceled if you do not apply. In November last year president Obama signed a bill that will eliminate certain benefits options. The two major changes are made to spousal benefits (applying for spousal benefits at age 62) and file and suspend benefits (older spouse file and suspend his benefits to allow the other spouse collect his). If you are at full retirement age or already collecting yours, the changes will not affect you. Here's summary of the changes:
