Hi, Devin. Thank you so much for your channel. I have literally looked for weeks for the answer to this question, and I have found nothing. Everything I see pertains to WEP and GPO. I get that. So, here is my question. My wife and I are in Texas. I'm 68, working, and not currently collecting SS benefits. My wife is currently working for Head Start (19 years) and is paying into TRS. She also has 40 quarters of paying into SS. My wife turns 66 in August of 2019 with no immediate plans to retire. If I start receiving my SS benefits, can she begin receiving spousal benefits, until she retires and begins receiving her TRS retirement? I understand at her retirement WEP and GPO will raise their ugly heads. Thanks for your time. Ben S
