My husband will be retiring next year at age 66 (full retirement age)I worked for 25 years then became a homemaker, but I have enough crdits to draw Social Security benefits, but much less then what my husband will be drawing. If I wait to apply for Social Security when I turn 66 (full retirement age) instead of drawing what I will be eligable for, can I draw half of what he will be getting?(which is still more then what I would draw on my own credits)
