Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today

You may be eligible for Social Security spouse’s benefits if you are:

  • At least 62 years of age; or
  • Any age and caring for a child entitled to receive benefits on your spouse’s record who is younger than age 16 or disabled.

You will receive your full spouse’s benefit amount if you wait until you reach full retirement age to begin receiving benefits. You will also receive the full amount if you are caring for a child entitled to receive benefits on your spouse’s record who is younger than age 16 or disabled.

Thank you for your question. I am happy to answer any follow up questions after my original answer is accepted.

A positive 5 star rating is always much appreciated.
