I took my Social Security at 66 while letting my wife’s spousal benefit grow (she’s four years younger). Hedging insolvency and life expectancy a bit.
Why would you not have let your wife start drawing her's, you take the spousal benefit (50%) of her's, and let yours grow?
My Bad. Realized your wife was born after 1954, so you wouldn't be able to do that.
Mine was (1953) so it's been a nice little bonus each month for me.
