Early Retirement and Spousal Benefits

At 66, can I work without an earnings penalty?

Q. My wife just turned 66, her full retirement age, and I am already retired. Four years ago, she took early retirement at age 62 on her own work record. I'm wondering, can she now convert her benefit to a spousal benefit and get an amount equal to half of what I'm getting? Also I retired at 62 on disability. Should that make a difference in the amount she can collect?Back to Article
