You can bet that tricks that some people use to get more money will be under the gun.

But File and Suspend is not a trick to get more money. It is a way to potentially raise your benefit; there is a difference.

Social Security benes can choose a benefit based on their earning history or a benefit equal to 50% of their spouse's benefit.

Congress will never change that provision.
