The younger spouse collecting on the high earning spouse's record only needs to be 62 to get a reduced benefit.

That's what I thought. But the ssa.gov example appeared (to me) to indicate otherwise. I am definitely going to look into this!

If, in fact, we can do this (once I turn 66), isn't it "free" money? Is there any reason not to do it, as long as I don't have a need to start receiving my benefits ... particularly since this loophole may be closed sometime soon?
