Can My Husband File And Suspend?

Hi Larry, I turned 66 last year but decided to wait until 70 before filing my Social Security retirement benefits. My husband, also 66, also wants to wait until 70. Can he file and suspend his retirement benefit, allowing me to file for spousal benefits now? And if so, will this affect or preclude me from filing for and obtaining a larger benefit when I turn 70? Thanks, Alyssa

Advisors’ Opinion:

    AMD, along with other server-grade chip manufacturers such as Qualcomm (NSDQ:QCOM), Cavium (NSDQ:CAVM) and AMCC (NSDQ:AMCC), operates in the remaining minuscule 0.8% of the market. So, each of the aforementioned companies operate with a practically non-existent market share, compared to Intels shipments of course. This also means that these firms (AMD, Qualcomm etc.) have plenty of room to grow. This would be subject to good product releases of course, but at least this way, the law of large numbers isnt working against them.
