Restricted application social security how to apply?

Post by saver007 » Sat Aug 24, 2019 11:05 am

Quick question.

What is the correct application form for the restricted application method (only taking half of spouse benefit while self benefit continue to grow)?

I am assuming it is ssa-2 form? Or is it ssa-1 by any chance?

You can do it online.

Or by phone

It looks like 2 to me, but don’t see why you would use it.
