My wife is claiming her ss benefit at age 62. She will get a reduced amount from her own earnigs. She will also get a small additional amount as a spouse. My question is:
Can she claim only based on her own earnings now (age 62), and then when she reach age 65 claim based on spouse?

Check on the retirement investing board or the SSA website:
