Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
To answer your question directly, your spouse would have a choice of either collecting her benefit, or 50% of your benefit. She cannot collect your full benefit as the SSA specifically places a 50% cap on spouses
She can always choose to change to your benefit, but if she is receiving more on her own, it may not make much sense to do so.
Hope that helps. Is there anything I can clarify for you?
