I am 68, wife 53 and son 9. I did file and suspend and wife and son receiving payments. I will take full benefits at age 70. Wife does not have significant SS contribution. She has not been working for last 15 years. I have a cancer that statistically will give me about 5 more years. My question is what is my wife's best strategy upon my death when she will be about 58-60 and my son 14 or so?
I'm sorry to hear about your prognosis.
