I turned 65 1/11/2023 My husband turns 65, March 16th, 2024. He wants to retire at 65, ii may or may not wait till my FRD of 66 and 8 months. We are selling a 2nd home this year and will be hit with Capital gains tax. How will the profit of the home or capital gains tax affect the calculations of ssi when we retire next year? Will this also affect how much we are charged for Medicare?

My husband was terminated after 40 years for no good reason. He is suing for age discrimination. Our lawyer says we have a very good case. He is 63. He just applied to get social security as he feels he will probably not get a job and we need the income. He is suing for back pay, forward pay and loss of benefits. If he wins, what happens with his social security benefit?
My wife and I are both 67. I’m on track to collect Social Security when I retire, but my wife has only worked for 38 quarters (she took time out first to raise our family, and then 20 years to care for our parents in their old age). Can my wife work 2 more quarters to become eligible for at least a minimal Social Security benefit? Does it have to be full time, or could she work part time and still qualify?
