I talked to social security about survivor benefits for planning purposes and I was surprised. I knew it would be the maximum benefit but having talked to them and read everything I could find, it seems that if I am going to claim as a survivor(spouse was the higher income and I have no real reason to try to equal or top it), there's no benefit to waiting past 66 (He was '51 and I am '54).

Did I miss something ?
