AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

As long as I am 62 or older and have claimed Social Security, can my spouse claim spouse benefits at any time?

En español | In order for your spouse to claim benefits on your record, your spouse must be at least 62 years old. It is important to note, however, that by claiming before full retirement age the benefit will be permanently reduced.
