Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer and can assist.Social security benefits are available to boost certain recipients payment, but not in your case. A survivor spouse can claim a 50% (max) benefit. In your case, your survivor benefit would not increase your benefit, and your wife would not see an increase either.

In your case, there looks to be no increase available for either of you. Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
