They called to see whether DW wanted to start her SS at the same time. I asked them to verify my amount which they gave to me over the phone. I also asked them about withholding for fed tax, and they said I would need to fill out a form and send to my local office, although they did mail me that form a few days after the call.
I just received a written confirmation from them yesterday that reflected the numbers given to me over the phone, but it indicated first payment would not come until 3 rd week in February.
