I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
Yes, when you pass away your wife can get up to 100% of your benefit check.
It would be reduced slightly if she took the benefit between the ages of 60-66, but once she reaches 66 she gets 100% of the benefit.
At age 60, it would be 70% of your benefit, and each year that percentage would increase
Do you have any further questions? IF not, please rate my response as excellent so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
