Your husband's FRA - full retirement age is 66 - starting this age - he is entitled to social security benefits ,

and you as a spouse may start spousal benefits based on his working record.

Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 8 months ago

Because you are above 66 (your FRA) you may get as much as 50% of his benefits.

Let me know if you need any help with application and supporting documents.
