Social Security for a Spouse
In this article by Elaine Popejoy, Social Security’s Bloomington (IL) District Manager, the author describes how important it is for a married couple to consider Social Security benefits for both partners. That is especially important for a spouse who was a lower-earning worker who, perhaps, spent part of their career at home caring for family.
