Customer Question

I am 68 dob3/11/1947 and my wife is 64 dob 9/25/1951. I have been on SS since age 66. My 64 yr old wife has not yet claimed SS but is eligible under her own work history and as my spouse but under either one at a reduced benefit because she is not yet 66. Under her own work record she would be eligible for about $1,500. per month at 66 and under spousal benefit, about $1,200. My question is ...Can she collect reduced SS under spousal coverage at this time and convert full work record amount at age 66. Also, please let me know if she would be eligible for my benefit as a spouse when I die? Please let me know. Thanks.
