I am 67 and still work. My wife retired at age 62 and I filed for spousal benefit on my wifes earnings. My own SS benefits will keep growing until age 70.
I am now filing for my own benefits to increase my wife's benefits but will then cancell my benefits so that it will continue to grow. My wife will get to keep the increased payment even after I cancell my benefit.
Not sure if I can then continue to collect on wife's benefits after I cancell my benefit?
I had also read in AARP about this same option. My husband is planning to sign up for SS at 66. He is currently receiving his pension. I am 62 and retired but not collecting. We are trying to determine what is possible for obtaining the best from the SS benefits. Is it possible to take spousal benefits and then canceling and taking ones own? We have a couple months before we approach this decision.
I would appreciate any assistance or comments.
