Q. My 66-year-old husband recently applied for Social Security. I am 62, became a CSRS retiree at age 60 (with over 37 years of service) and I work part time. Someone at the Social Security Administration told my husband that I qualify for spousal benefits under his Social Security, but someone else there said that I don’t qualify until I turn 66. Who’s right?
A. According to the Social Security Administration, monthly payments can be made to a retired worker’s wife or husband if he or she is age 62.
