Hi,

No. Since your husband was born after January 1 1954, while you're living he could never apply for just spousal benefits only without also being required to apply for his own benefits at the same time (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/deemedfaq.html).

Your husband may want to consider using our software (https://maximizemysocialsecurity.com/purchase) to explore his filing options in order to determine the best strategy for maximizing his benefits.

Best, Jerry
