is it true that my wife can get 50% of my social security each

This answer was rated:

is it true that my wife can get 50% of my social security each month while I continue to get the same amount that I now get? can we do this if she is now getting her own social security?

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, what you have heard is true - your wife can get 1/2 of your social security while you still draw your full benefit

MyVirtualCPA :

But, this benefit is instead of her own benefit

MyVirtualCPA :

She cannot draw both
