I requested voluntary suspension before April 30, 2016. Will I be affected by the new rules?

No, the new rules will not affect individuals who suspended their benefits before April 30, 2016. Also, if you submitted your request before April 30, 2016 and your spouse or children become entitled to benefits either before or after that date, they will not be affected by the new rules and will continue to receive payment.
