Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist. Thanks for asking for me.
Her age when sheer first claims sets the benefit discount for her claims. An early claim at 62 carries that discount to not only her spousal benefit, but her own benefit when claimed.
If she waits to claim a spousal benefit at full retirement age, say 66, gets a full 50% spousal benefit and her full benefit at age 70.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
