Can I Apply Online For My Benefits If I'm Already Receiving Spousal Benefits?
I did a restricted application and have been receiving spousal benefits since turning FRA. I now wish to switch to my own benefits. The Online application is very vague regarding this sort of circumstance, (nothing on the online app. deals with switching benefits...). After a week of waiting on hold, being disconnected and generally frustrated I was finally able to talk to a local rep. He said that I cannot use the online app for my particular situation and application must be done in a live meeting at the offices.
