  When are the benefits of a spouse with child in care stopped?
  Question
  What happens to the spouse's benefits after the child turns 16 and the spouse is under 62?
  Answer
  Benefits are paid only to a wife or husband under age 62, if she or he is taking care of the worker's entitled child who is under age 16 or disabled. When the youngest child turns 16, benefits to the spouse are stopped unless the spouse is taking care of an entitled┬ádisabled child of the worker.
