Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

You need to wait until 62 to be eligible for any social security benefits. If you apply at 62, you will be eligible for about 35% of his benefits which may be further reduced by your earnings if you continue working.

And here's benefits calculator. Based on your date of birth and month you start collecting spousal benefits you can estimate the percentage you will receive.

If you continue working, your benefits will be reduce by $1 for every $2 you make over 15,720
