Receiving a Spousal Social Security Benefit while still working
Can a person file on the record of his/her spouse to receive benefits at the age of 66+ but also continue to contribute to their own social security through their employer until their retirement at a later time?

Yes, at age 66 a person can make the choice to take a spousal benefit while saving their own for a higher benefit.
