I have a disabled adult son. My wife is turning 66 in August and we were planning on him applying for child benefits on her retirement record. I am turning 66 next year and my retirement benefit will be much higher than hers so my question is can he switch his child benefit to 50% of my retirement benefit if he is already collecting on my wife's retirement benefit?
Can you explain how "spousal child-in-care" benefits work? I've read about them but not sure how they fit in with child benefits and spousal benefits.
