Hi Darrel, Your spouse, if otherwise eligible, at the age of 62, can start collecting retirement - either the amount on her own record, or a spousal amount if that one is bigger. If she DOES decide to collect early (before her FRA), her own benefit amount will be reduced by about 30%. And, the same is true of her spousal amount. But if she waits til her FRA (66+), she can collect 100%+ of her own or 50% of your primary insurance amount as her spousal, whichever is higher.
