Shouldn't My Family Member Be Able To Draw Spousal Benefits?
A family member filed and suspended in April 2016 which would be prior to the law change. He was a little past his FRA so no issue there. He did this so his wife could claim a spousal benefit at her full retirement age while he is continuing to work and not drawing his benefit. His spouse, just having reached FRA this month, went to SS to file for spousal benefits. She was only given the option of filing on her account, which is minimal as she only worked enough to receive minimum benefits.
