It isn't whether he made more money unless he is dead. If he is alive, your benefit may still be more than half of his.

January 1, 1954, is the cut-off for taking half of his while letting yours continue to grow. I was born on January 27, 1954, so I was out of luck.

they take 1/2 the higher fra amount , subtract the lower fra amount and what ever difference exists gets added to the lower persons own benefit , never exceeding 1/2 the higher benefit .
