Customer Question

My husband wants to start taking social security. He turns 65 on Feb. 18. He was wondering if he applies to receive it this November, will his amount be based on age 64 plus 9 months or would it be beneficial to wait until 65 to get a larger amount?
JA: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?
Customer: No. That's all we were wondering the amount is determined. Thanks!

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

Your husband's full retirement age is 66, not 65. If he takes his benefits now, in November 2017 he will receives 91.7% of his benefits. If he starts in February 2017, he will receive 93.3% of his full benefits.
