You say yes, but the link disagrees with you. Good info in the link, though.


How so?

If your spouse is under full retirement age and qualifies on his or her own record, we will pay that amount first. But if he or she also qualifies for a higher amount as a spouse, they'll get a combination of benefits that equals that higher amount. If he or she begins receiving benefits:

between age 62 and their full retirement age, the amount will be permanently reduced by a percentage based on the number of months up to his or her full retirement age.

If your spouse is under full retirement age and works while receiving benefits, his or her benefits may be affected by the retirement earnings test.
