Are there any pitfalls when filing a restricted application for SS. I will be filing on-line in about a year from now and I was wondering if the process for filing a restricted application is fairly transparent. I am concerned that the process could be a gotcha and my benefits will start full retirement and not for spousal benefits when I'm 66
Unfortunately, Social Security doesn't allow non-applicants to view the online applications. As a result I can't give you much specific help with regard to the online application process.
